Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Current law establishes certain requirements for manufacturers and
distributors of commercial feed and feed products for animals and birds. Under
current law, a person who violates these requirements is subject to a fine of up to $200
or imprisonment for up to six months, or both.
This bill changes the penalties for violations of the commercial feed and feed
product requirements. Under this bill, a person who violates these requirements is
subject to a civil forfeiture of between $100 and $500 for the first violation, and
between $200 and $1,000 for any additional violation within five years of the first
violation. In addition, a manufacturer or distributor who knowingly violates these
requirements may be subject to a fine of up to $5,000 or imprisonment for up to one
year, or both; and any other person who knowingly violates these requirements may
be subject to a fine of up to $1,000 or imprisonment for up to 30 days, or both.
