§ 3.1-274. (Repealed effective October 1, 2008) Notice of violations; review; warning
It shall be the duty of the Commissioner or his agent to give notice of every violation of the provisions of this article with respect to agricultural, vegetable, flower, tree and shrub, lawn and turf seed, mixtures of such seeds or "screenings" to the person in whose possession such seed or "screenings" are found. The Commissioner or his agent shall forward a copy of such notice to the person whose "analysis tag or label" is attached to the container of such seed or "screenings".
Nothing in this article shall be construed as requiring the Commissioner to report for prosecution, or for the institution of seizure proceedings, where the Commissioner considers the violation of the law to be minor. In such cases, the Commissioner or his agent may serve a suitable notice of warning in writing, when he believes that the public interest will be best served by so doing.
