USDA has decided to extend the 30-day comment period for the Section 9006
Proposed Rule.  They will be placing their announcement on the Federal
Register (www.gpoaccess.gov/fr/browse.html)  later this afternoon.  When we
spoke to USDA they had not decided the length of the extension but the new
deadline will be included in the Federal Register posting.

Thank you for your patience in this process and we will update you as
events warrant.
