Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (Watch)

<p>Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (Watch)</p><p> SB 740 (Stargel) and HB 553 (Raburn) are lengthy bills that address the various duties and authority of the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.  The bills are of little interest to municipalities except for one provision that preempts the regulation of “seed” to the Department. The preemption relates to matters already regulated by the Department and does not appear affect municipal interests.  (O’Hara)</p>
