Bill description: SB 1225 would change reporting requirements for commercial fertilizer and soil amendment registrants.
Does it give government any new, additional, or expanded power to prohibit, restrict, or regulate activities in the free market? Conversely, does it eliminate or reduce government intervention in the market?
Under Idaho law, certain manufacturers or distributors of commercial fertilizer have to register their products with the Idaho State Department of Agriculture. Individuals or companies that register must, twice a year, submit a report to the department, “setting forth the number of net tons of each fertilizer so distributed into or within this state.” SB 1225 would turn this current, semiannual reporting requirement into an annual one.
The same change is made for registered soil amendments (substances, other than fertilizer, meant to enhance soil).
