The Hardwood Checkoff program proposal has been given a “green light” for further action at the United States Department of Agriculture, according to the Hardwood Checkoff Committee.
The US Hardwood Industry Coalition says it is clarifying the status of the proposed Hardwood Checkoff with news that the USDA has elected not to proceed on the proposal.
Despite an opposition group's claim to the contrary, a "green light" has been given to the proposed Hardwood Checkoff program for further review by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, says the committee sponsoring the initiative.
