 29        misrepresentation in the procurement of a license; and/or
 30        (2b)  The licensee was guilty of violating any of the provisions  of  this

Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact



                       STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
                             RS 13671

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.


                         Fiscal Impact
                                
There will be no fiscal impact because these seed dealers do not
currently obtain a seed dealers license.
