           An act relating to agriculture; abolishing refund of

          amending Minnesota Statutes 1990, section 17.63. 
    Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1990, section 17.63, is 
amended to read: 
    17.63 [REFUND OF FEES.] 
    Any producer, except a producer of potatoes in area number 
one, as listed in section 17.54, subdivision 9, or a producer of 
paddy wild rice, may, by the use of forms to be provided by the 
commissioner and upon presentation of such proof as the 
commissioner requires, have 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.
