Call for Support of Central Filing System Legislation
The Senate version of legislation to create a central filing system relating to security interests in farm products was previously approved in Senate State Government Committee and is now SF 486. This bill has now been referred to the Senate Ways and Means Committee since it contains a fee for filings, which makes it eligible for action until the end of the session. CBI supports this legislation, and urges members to contact their Senator and ask them to support SF 486.
