WASHINGTON, D.C., Jan. 3, 2005 - The U. S. Department of Agriculture today
announced a tentative final decision that amends the current pooling provisions of the Arizona-
Las Vegas milk marketing order. This decision is based on testimony and evidence given at a
public hearing held on Sept. 23-25, 2003, in Tempe, Ariz.; Nov. 17-21, 2003, in Seattle, Wash.; and, Jan. 20-22, 2004, in Alexandria, Va.

 
This decision adopts, on an interim and emergency basis, an amendment to the producer
milk provision that would eliminate the ability to simultaneously pool milk on the Arizona-Las
Vegas milk order when the same milk is already pooled on a state-operated milk order that has
marketwide pooling. Interested persons have 60 days to file comments in response to the
tentative decision.

 
This decision appeared in the Dec. 30 Federal Register and requires producer approval. If producers approve the order as amended, USDA will issue an amended order on an interim basis.
