Continuation of the Pennsylvania Peach and Nectarine Research Program
[49 Pa.B. 2005]
[Saturday, April 27, 2019]
Under the applicable provisions of 3 Pa.C.S. §§ 4501—4513 (relating to Agricultural Commodities Marketing Act), a review referendum was held from March 18 to April 5, 2019, to determine if the producers affected by the Pennsylvania Peach and Nectarine Research 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 April 9, 2019, to count the ballots. The following results were submitted by the Committee: a total of 33 eligible votes were cast with 26 producers voting in favor of and 1 voting against the continuation of the Program. An additional 6 ballots were invalid because they did not meet the eligibility requirements. Votes favoring continuation of the Program by number of producers represented 96% of eligible votes and votes against continuation of the Program represented 4% of eligible votes. Because a majority of the votes were cast in favor of the Program, the Program shall continue for 5 years, effective immediately.
