Termination of the Pennsylvania Apple Marketing Program
[46 Pa.B. 7677]
[Saturday, December 10, 2016]
Under the applicable provisions of 3 Pa.C.S. §§ 4501—4513 (relating to Agricultural Commodities Marketing Act), a review referendum was held from October 17—31, 2016, to determine if the producers affected by the Pennsylvania Apple Marketing Program (Program) wished to continue the Program for an additional 5 years. To pass, a majority of eligible producers voting had to vote in favor of the Program's continuation. An impartial Teller Committee (Committee) met on November 9, 2016, to count the ballots. The following results were submitted by the Committee: a total of 133 eligible votes were cast with 58 producers voting in favor of and 75 voting against the continuation of the Program. One ballot was invalid because it was received late. Two additional ballots contained no vote because the producer stated they were not eligible to vote. Votes favoring continuation of the Program by number of producers represented 44% of eligible votes and votes against continuation of the Program represented 56% of eligible votes. Because a majority of the votes cast were not in favor of continuation, the Program will terminate on May 26, 2017.
