USDA/FSA RIN: 0560-AG90 Publication ID: Fall 2009 
Title: Selection of FSA State and County Committees 
Abstract: This action will amend the regulations to implement the provisions of the 2002 Farm Bill relating to the establishment of FSA county, area, and local committees. The statute provides that committees have from three to five members, that they be representative of the producers in the area, and that the term of office not exceed 3 years. It also requires that the Secretary solicit nominations from organizations representing the interests of socially disadvantaged groups and, if determined necessary, promulgate uniform guidelines for conducting elections that will ensure fair representation of socially disadvantaged groups. The Secretary may also ensure inclusion of socially disadvantaged farmers by appointing one additional voting member to a committee. The rule will provide for election procedures, including nominations, opening of ballots, and reporting of results. Further, the rule will eliminate community committees from the existing regulations.
