AMS sought comment to evaluate the analysis in the Economic Analysis Report and to decide whether additional action should be taken in regard to the OLPP Rule. The public comment process for the Economic Analysis Report is being conducted consistent with an Order of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, which granted USDA's Motion to Remand a legal challenge to the Withdrawal Rule for purposes of clarifying and supplementing the record regarding the economic analysis underlying both the OLPP Rule and the Withdrawal Rule. (<em>See Organic Trade Association</em>&nbsp;v.&nbsp;<em>USDA;</em>&nbsp;Civil Action No. 17-1875 (RMC) (March 12, 2020), ECF No. 112). After reviewing the Economic Analysis Report and the public comments on it, AMS is issuing this Final Decision concluding that no additional rulemaking action with respect to the OLPP Rule is necessary.</p> <p><strong>Contact</strong></p> <p>Jennifer Tucker, Ph.D., Deputy Administrator, National Organic Program, Telephone: (202) 720-3252.
