Section 52324. (Amended by Stats. 2009, Ch. 281, Sec. 2.)
Cite as: Cal. Food & Agric. Code §52324.
The subvention program under Section 52323 is an optional program available to counties. The subvention to counties under Section 52323 shall be annually apportioned as follows:
(a)At the discretion of the secretary and upon recommendation of the Seed Advisory Board, counties with no registered seed labelers may annually receive one hundred dollars ($100).
(b)Counties with registered seed labeler operations shall receive subventions based upon units of enforcement activity generated by the registered seed labeler operations within the county and upon the performance of enforcement activities necessary to carry out this chapter. The units of activity shall be determined by the secretary, taking into consideration the number of lots and kinds of seed labeled by each registered seed labeler operation within the county. The rate per unit of activity shall be established by dividing the total statewide units of activity into the annual funds available to the counties under Section 52323 after deducting the amount required for subventions in subdivision (a). Apportionment to individual counties shall be based upon the county’s total units of activity performed times the established rate.
This section shall remain in effect only until January 1, 2015, and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted statute, that is enacted before January 1, 2015, deletes or extends that date.
