According to an “interim final rule” issued on July 17, eligible aliens who want any chance of being selected for legal status as replenishment agricultural workers (RAWS) from October 1, 1989, through September 30,1993, have to register before November 1, 1989. This version supersedes a proposed rule issued last March that covered only the first year of the RAW program established under the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA) (see “SAW employment data and the need for RAWs,” California Agriculture, May-June 1989).
