  1  1    Section 1.  Section 198.3, subsection 3, Code 1997, is
  1  2 amended to read as follows:
  1  3    3.  "Commercial feed" means all materials except or a
  1  4 combination of materials which are distributed or intended for
  1  5 distribution for use as feed or for mixing in feed, unless
  1  6 such materials are specifically exempted.  Unmixed whole seeds
  1  7 unmixed or and physically altered entire unmixed seeds, when
  1  8 such whole or physically altered seeds are not chemically
  1  9 changed or are not adulterated within the meaning of section
  1 10 198.7, subsection 1, which are distributed for use as feed or
  1 11 for mixing in feed exempt.  The secretary by rule may exempt
  1 12 from this definition, or from specific provisions of this
  1 13 chapter, commodities such as hay, straw, stover, silage, cobs,
  1 14 husks, hulls and individual chemical compounds or substances
  1 15 when such commodities, compounds or substances are not
  1 16 intermixed or mixed with other materials, and are not
  1 17 adulterated within the meaning of section 198.7, subsection 1.
  1 18    Sec. 2.  Section 198.4, subsection 1, unnumbered paragraph
  1 19 1, Code 1997, is amended by striking the paragraph and
  1 20 inserting in lieu thereof the following:
  1 21    This section shall apply to any person:
  1 22    a.  Who manufactures a commercial feed within the state.
  1 23    b.  Who distributes a commercial feed in or into the state.
  1 24    c.  Whose name appears on the label of a commercial feed as
  1 25 guarantor.
  1 26    The person shall obtain a license, for each facility which
  1 27 distributes in or into the state, authorizing the person to
  1 28 manufacture or distribute commercial feed before the person
  1 29 engages in such activity.  Any person who makes only retail
  1 30 sales of commercial feed which bears labeling or other
  1 31 approved indication that the commercial feed is from a
  1 32 licensed manufacturer, guarantor, or distributor who has
  1 33 assumed full responsibility for the tonnage inspection fee due
  1 34 under section 198.9 is not required to obtain a license.  
  1 35                           EXPLANATION
  2  1    This bill amends Code chapter 198, the "Iowa Commercial
  2  2 Feed Law".  The bill amends Code section 198.3 which provides
  2  3 that commercial feed does not include certain seeds.  This
  2  4 bill provides that the exemption does not apply to seeds which
  2  5 have been chemically changed.  The bill also amends Code
  2  6 section 198.4, which requires that persons must be licensed if
  2  7 they manufacture a commercial feed, if the person's name
  2  8 appears on the label of a commercial feed, or if the person is
  2  9 a broker of commercial feed.  This bill provides that the
  2 10 manufacturer, distributor, and broker must still receive a
  2 11 license.  It provides that a person whose name appears on the
  2 12 commercial feed label as a guarantor must also be licensed.
  2 13 The bill provides that a person is not required to obtain a
  2 14 license if the person makes only retail sales of commercial
  2 15 feed and the commercial feed bears a label providing that the
  2 16 commercial feed comes from a licensed manufacturer, guarantor,
  2 17 or distributor who is responsible for paying an inspection fee
  2 18 imposed under the chapter.
