Utah Egg Marketing Order
Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation
DAR File No.: 38845
Filed: 09/08/2014 03:47:32 PM
NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION
Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:
Under authority of Subsection 4-2-2(1)(e), the Commissioner of Agriculture and Food can authorize marketing orders to promote orderly market conditions for agricultural products. The Utah Egg Marketing Order was originally established at the request of the industry and upon study of the potential benefits.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
There have not been any written comments received opposing or supporting this rule.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
As the industry has consolidated into fewer and larger producers, the Egg Marketing Board became inactive and the industry indicated that there was not currently a need for this rule. Nonetheless, it would seem prudent to continue the Utah Egg Marketing Order for another five years to determine if there may be a need for it again in the future. There is a thriving business of very small backyard egg producers that may see the need to use this order at a future date. If the order is terminated and producers desire to have a marketing order in the future, it would require a new referendum and producer vote. Therefore, it is recommended that this rule be continued for another five years in an inactive state.
