  5 25    3.  An inspection fee is delinquent after ten days
  5 26 following the date that a distribution report and fee are due
  5 27 as provided in section 200A.8.  A delinquency penalty of not
  5 28 more than ten percent of the amount due shall be assessed
  5 29 against the person who is delinquent.  However, the penalty
  5 30 shall be at least fifty dollars.  The amount of fees and

  7 13    2.  A person shall not advertise a bulk product by making
  7 14 false or misleading statements regarding the bulk product.
  7 15    3.  A person shall not misbrand a bulk product by providing
  7 16 a distribution statement to a purchaser which fails to
  7 17 identify a substance promoting plant growth according to the
  7 18 bulk product's guaranteed analysis as provided in section
  7 19 200A.6.
  7 20    4.  The burden of proof regarding a claim made by a person

 11 12 money equal to the amount collected in fees and delinquency
 11 13 penalties shall be credited to and used only by the department
 11 14 for the administration or enforcement of this chapter in the
 11 15 same manner as moneys provided to departments under section
 11 16 8.60.  However, the department may allocate moneys to the Iowa
 11 17 agricultural experiment station for research, work projects,
 11 18 and investigations as needed for the specific purpose of
 11 19 improving the regulatory functions to improve the enforcement
 11 20 of this chapter.  
 11 21                           EXPLANATION
 11 22    This bill creates a new chapter 200A referred to as the
 11 23 "Bulk Dry Animal Nutrient Products Law".  The bill regulates
 11 24 certain bulk dry animal manure for use as a fertilizer or soil
 11 25 conditioner and especially the distribution of the manure,
 11 26 which is unmanipulated and therefore not subject to regulation
 11 27 under chapter 200 (regulating processed fertilizers and soil
 11 28 conditioners).
 11 29    According to the bill, a bulk dry animal nutrient product
 11 30 (or bulk product) is limited to unmanipulated animal manure
 11 31 composed primarily of animal excreta which contains one or
 11 32 more recognized plant nutrients which are used for their plant
 11 33 nutrient content; promotes plant growth; does not flow
 11 34 perceptibly under pressure; is not capable of being
 11 35 transported through a mechanical pumping device designed to
 12  1 move a liquid; and has constituent molecules that do not flow
 12  2 freely among themselves but do show the tendency to separate
 12  3 under stress.  The bill regulates this material in bulk form
 12  4 to which a label cannot be attached.
 12  5    The bill authorizes the department of agriculture and land
 12  6 stewardship to adopt rules necessary to administer the
 12  7 regulations, including but not limited to rules regulating
 12  8 licensing, labeling, registration, distribution, and storage
 12  9 of the bulk dry animal manure.
 12 10    The bill provides that a person who distributes a bulk dry
 12 11 animal nutrient product in this state must first obtain a
 12 12 license from the department.  The person is required to pay a
 12 13 $10 license fee for each place from which a bulk product is
 12 14 distributed in this state.  The bill also provides that a
 12 15 person cannot distribute the bulk product unless the bulk
 12 16 product is registered with the department.  A registration
 12 17 application must include an accompanying label setting forth
 12 18 the bulk product's guaranteed analysis, a description of how
 12 19 the distributor plans to obtain the acres necessary for proper
 12 20 application of the bulk product which is not distributed,
 12 21 evidence regarding the effects and safety of the bulk product,
 12 22 and any additional data as required by the department.
 12 23    The bill requires that the distribution of a bulk dry
 12 24 animal nutrient product be accompanied by a distribution
 12 25 statement which includes information about the product's
 12 26 guaranteed analysis, the name and address of the bulk
 12 27 product's purchaser, and a notice to the bulk product's
 12 28 purchaser stating the number of acres needed to apply the bulk
 12 29 product based on the average corn yields in the county where
 12 30 the bulk product is to be applied.  It must also include a
 12 31 warning that application of the bulk product should not exceed
 12 32 the nitrogen levels necessary to obtain optimum crop yields
 12 33 for the crop being grown.
 12 34    The bill requires that a person required to be licensed
 12 35 under the bill must file a distribution report with the
 13  1 department twice each year.  The report must include
 13  2 information regarding the number of tons of bulk dry animal
 13  3 nutrient product distributed in the state during the preceding
 13  4 six-month period, the name and address of each purchaser, and
 13  5 an inspection fee.  The amount of the inspection fee is
 13  6 established by the department based on the number of tons of
 13  7 manure distributed.  The rate cannot be more than 20 cents per
 13  8 ton.  The bill also imposes a delinquency penalty upon persons
 13  9 who are late filing the distribution report and fee.
 13 10    The bill provides for the examination of samples to ensure
 13 11 compliance with the provisions of the bill, procedures for
 13 12 collecting and examining samples, and the use of samples in
 13 13 legal proceedings.
 13 14    The bill prohibits distributing a bulk dry animal nutrient
 13 15 product if the bulk product contains a filler material that
 13 16 may harm plants or the soil.  It also prohibits distributors
 13 17 from making false claims regarding a bulk product, including
 13 18 misbranding a bulk product in a distribution statement.  The
 13 19 bill prohibits a distributor from storing the bulk product in
 13 20 a manner which pollutes the waters of the state.
 13 21    The bill includes a number of enforcement mechanisms which
 13 22 allow the department to take disciplinary action concerning a
 13 23 registration of a bulk dry animal nutrient product or the
 13 24 license of a person distributing the bulk product.  According
 13 25 to the bill, the department may cancel the registration or
 13 26 deny an application for registration; suspend or terminate a
 13 27 license or deny an application for a license; issue and
 13 28 enforce a "stop sale, use, or removal" order; seize and
 13 29 dispose of any lot of a bulk product upon court order; and
 13 30 apply for injunctive relief.
 13 31    The bill provides that a person in violation of the
 13 32 chapter's provisions is subject to prosecution by a county
 13 33 attorney.  The department may file a report with the county
 13 34 attorney certifying evidence against the alleged violator.
 13 35    The bill provides that its provisions do not affect the
 14  1 distribution of bulk dry animal nutrient products distributed
 14  2 to importers, manufacturers, or manipulators who mix the bulk
 14  3 product for distribution or the shipment of the bulk product
 14  4 to a licensee who has registered the bulk product.
 14  5    The bill protects a site used for the storage, manufacture,
 14  6 distribution, or use of bulk dry animal nutrient products from
 14  7 a nuisance suit if the site was established prior to the time
 14  8 of the person bringing the legal action.
 14  9    The bill provides that the provisions of the chapter and
 14 10 rules adopted by the department preempt local legislation
 14 11 adopted by a local governmental entity relating to the use,
 14 12 sale, distribution, storage, transportation, disposal,
 14 13 formulation, labeling, registration, or manufacture of a bulk
 14 14 dry animal nutrient product.
 14 15    The bill provides that fees and delinquency penalties
 14 16 collected by the department pursuant to this chapter are
 14 17 deposited in the general fund of the state.  The bill also
 14 18 provides that an amount of money equal to the amount collected
 14 19 in fees and delinquency penalties is credited to and shall be
 14 20 used by the department in the same manner as moneys provided
 14 21 to departments under old trust funds for purposes necessary
 14 22 for the administration or enforcement of this bill.
