RS27433C1 / H0389
This legislation provides general housekeeping updates for the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC), including:
• Establishing that commissioners serve at the pleasure of the governor to provide anti-trust protection for the
promotion and marketing activities of the IPC
• Moving district boundaries for grower commissioners to better reflect production areas in the state, including
the creation of an at-large grower commissioner in Eastern Idaho
• Changing the appointment start date from September 15 to September 1
• Updating the definition of "shipper" to include the role of vertically integrated growers with shipping
operations and clarifying that "grower," "shipper," and processor" definitions shall only be used for determining
qualifications for the IPC
• Adding a referendum process that requires support from at least six commissioners, including growers,
shippers, and processors.
Due to the nature of the changes, this legislation will have a de minimum impact to the General Fund or other
funding sources.
