30.152 Not to pay inspectors.
No person shall, directly or indirectly, hire or pay the compensation of any state inspector to determine the grade or quality of potatoes offered or exposed for sale in the state, other than the state of Minnesota, whose duly constituted officers shall, in due form and in accordance with law, issue commissions to inspectors duly authorizing and empowering them to act as such.
Nothing herein shall prevent any person paying the proper inspection fees, duly established, to the proper persons duly authorized to receive the same, but the payment or allowance of any gratuity, commission, or allowance in addition thereto shall constitute the crime of bribery and shall be punished by law as such.
