Effective Dates of Assessment

(1) The assessment to be withheld and paid by a first purchaser or handler, as required by ORS Chapter 576 and OAR 642-010-0010, or the reports required under OAR 642-010-0015, applies to and covers any purchase by him or delivery on or after July 1, 1984, of mint oil grown in Oregon.

(2) This order shall be effective July 1, 1984, as postponement would result in serious prejudice to the public interest and particularly to the mint industry of this state. The Commission was only approved by referendum after a substantial number of the producers and all other segments of such industry agreed that cooperative programs were and are necessary to identify its needs with respect to research, education, and market development; studying legislation and regulation, state and federal, that affect the mint industry. It was a part of such opinion, and recently affirmed by a majority thinking of those in attendance at the public hearing, that such programs and the work of the Commission must start without delay.
