Amends the Pure Seed Law to provide an exemption from licensing
requirements for certain seed dealers who sell, offer for sale,
expose for sale or deliver seed only in packages of less than
eight (8) ounces. Allows for technical corrections to be made to
the existing law.
There will be no fiscal impact because these seed dealers do not
currently obtain a seed dealers license.
