  ( Chapter 9 enacted by Stats. 1967, Ch. 15. )

ARTICLE 2. Licenses [57131 - 57134]
  ( Article 2 enacted by Stats. 1967, Ch. 15. )


It is unlawful for any person to establish or operate a dairy produce exchange unless he has first obtained from the director a license to do so.

(Enacted by Stats. 1967, Ch. 15.)


Every dairy produce exchange, and any person that desires to operate a dairy produce exchange, before engaging in such activity, shall file with the director a written application for a license, accompanied by the license fee which is prescribed by Section 57134. The application shall state all of the following information:

(a) The name under which the dairy produce exchange proposes to operate.

(b) The location of its place of business.

(c) The names of its officers, directors, and the persons, firms, corporations, or associations which constitute its membership.

(d) A certified copy of its articles of incorporation, its constitution and bylaws, and the rules and regulations and bases of trade under which it proposes to operate.

(Enacted by Stats. 1967, Ch. 15.)


The director shall examine the application, and if he finds that the applicant has fully complied with the provisions of this chapter, he shall issue a license which authorizes the applicant to operate a dairy produce exchange. The license shall recite in bold type that the issuance of the license is permissive only and does not constitute a recommendation or endorsement of the rules and regulations or bases of trade under which the applicant proposes to operate.

(Enacted by Stats. 1967, Ch. 15.)


For each license, the director shall charge the sum of one hundred dollars ($100), which sum shall accompany the application for the license. Except as otherwise provided in this chapter, each license which is issued by the director shall continue in effect so long as the licensee shall continue in business, and shall pay a fee of one hundred dollars ($100) annually to the director. Such fee is payable on the first Monday of each calendar year.
