Oregon Statutes - Chapter 583 - Milk Marketing, Production and Distribution - Section 583.004 - Use of fees in enforcement of chapter; poundage fee under ORS 583.046 increased.

(1) The fees in ORS 583.166, are continuously appropriated to the State Department of Agriculture for the purpose of administering and enforcing the provisions of this chapter.

(2) It is the intent of this section and ORS 583.545 to avoid duplication, and in lieu of requiring separate reports to be forwarded and deductions to be withheld by first handlers to support the provisions of this chapter, to combine the two into one deduction, payment and report. In order to provide fees necessary to carry out and enforce both laws and programs, an additional poundage fee of not more than one cent per hundredweight on all milk is hereby authorized and shall be deducted by first handlers and paid over to the department, at the same time, in the same manner and as required and authorized by the provisions of ORS 583.046. Subject to the limitations of ORS 583.046 (2), the total maximum poundage fee provided in ORS 583.046 is hereby increased to one and three-fourths cents per hundredweight on such milk. [1963 c.442 §9(2),(3)]
