LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 3103, as introduced, Megan Dahle. Commercial feed: Feed Inspection Advisory Board.
Existing law establishes the Feed Inspection Advisory Board in state government and generally requires it to serve in an advisory capacity to the Secretary of Food and Agriculture with respect to the operation of the law governing commercial feed. Existing law authorizes the board to establish or designate one or more other entities to administer all or part of the law governing commercial feed and requires the secretary to adopt regulations and procedures to be used by the entity or entities. Existing law specifies the entity or entities that may be established or designated by the board for this purpose including state accredited or certified chemistry laboratories.
This bill would authorize state accredited, certified, or licensed laboratories to be established or designated for this purpose instead of state accredited or certified chemistry laboratories.
