The Consolidated Farm Service Agency (CFSA) is proposing to amend its regulations pertaining to licensed tobacco warehouses under the United States Warehouse Act (USWA). The proposed rule would define warehouse to exclude places which have contracted with a cooperative marketing association (association) to make Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) price support advances to producers on behalf of the association and to which producers will deliver their tobacco for display and auction (hereinafter auction warehouses). Accordingly, the proposed rule removes such places from the jurisdiction of the USWA Tobacco Warehouse Regulations as provided for under 7 CFR part 737. The proposed rule also makes changes with respect to package arrangement and some clerical corrections.
