Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for April 22, 2015:

PROPOSED RULE: This proposed rule would implement a recommendation from the Cranberry Marketing Committee (Committee) to revise the determination of sales history provisions currently prescribed under the cranberry marketing order (order).
