In North Dakota, Bill Would Take Grain Regulation from PSC

Bad checks from roving grain trader are making legislature consider finding better ways to protect farmers

Bad checks from a roving grain trader are making the North Dakota Legislature consider finding better ways to protect farmers, reports AgWeek.

Rep. Dennis Johnson, R-Devils Lake, chairman of the House Agriculture Committee, on Jan. 14 introduced a bill that would move the grain responsibilities from the Public Service Commission to the North Dakota Department of Agriculture.

A competing bill was also introduced that would expand an indemnity fund to cover not only credit sales but all contracts including cash sales of grain and oilseeds.
