Current Bill Summary

SB 361 - This act limits a soil and water district's power to compete in the marketplace for marketing and selling farm products. Currently, the district is allowed to sell items that are directly or indirectly related to soil and water conservation.

Pursuant to this act, a district can still sell products, but it must receive approval from the State Soil and Water Districts Commission. The approval depends on a finding that the products are: 1) Reasonably related to soil and water conservation; and 2) Not readily available in the area.

The request by the district to sell products must be published in a newspaper of general circulation in the district's area. The Commission will consider written comments when making its determination.

Current inventory is allowed to be sold, but restocking is prohibited until the district receives Commission approval.
