SB 78: Adulteration and Misbranding of Food; Commissioner of Agriculture to issue a variance to certain rules and regulations; authorize

Voted on Thursday March 9, 2017

John Pezold's thoughts

SB 78 authorizes the Dept. of Ag Commissioner to issue a variance or waiver of certain rules and regulations of the department. These waivers or variances can be given authorized if the rule would create a substantial hardship to a person. Additionally, the variances or waivers shall not be sought or authorized if granting a waiver or variance would be harmful to the public.

This is identical to a piece of legislation that passed out before Crossover.
