of forms to be provided by the commissioner and upon

the checkoff fee paid pursuant to sections 17.51 to 17.69 
refunded, provided the checkoff fee was remitted on a timely 
basis.  The request for refund must be received in the office of 
the commissioner within the time specified in the promotion 
order following the payment of the checkoff fee.  In no event 
shall these requests for refund be accepted more often than 12 
times per year.  Refund shall be made by the commissioner and 
council within 30 days of the request for refund provided that 
the checkoff fee sought to be refunded has been received.  Rules 
governing the refund of checkoff fees for all commodities shall 
be formulated by the commissioner, shall be fully outlined in 
the promotion order, and shall be available for the information 
of all producers concerned with the referendum.  
    Sec. 2.  [EFFECTIVE DATE.]
