John Pezold's thoughts

This legislation permits the state agriculture commissioner to act on behalf of the federal Dept. of Ag and/or USDA for inspections and “other regulatory actions” in terms of labeling and standards.

It also grants the Georgia Dept of Ag the ability to enter into agreements with the federal government.
