Title 6 : Agriculture


Subchapter 001 : General Provisions

(Cite as: 6 V.S.A. § 250)
  • § 250. Legislative declaration

    It is hereby declared that the inability of individual producers to develop new and larger markets for agricultural commodities results in an unreasonable and unnecessary economic waste of the agricultural wealth of this State. These conditions and the accompanying waste jeopardize the future continued production of adequate food supplies for the people of this and other states. These conditions vitally concern the health, safety, and general welfare of the people in this State. It is therefore declared the legislative purpose and the policy of this State:

    (1) to enable agricultural producers of this State, with the aid of the State, to more effectively correlate the marketing of their agricultural commodities with market demands;

    (2) to establish orderly, efficient, and equitable marketing of agricultural commodities;

    (3) to provide methods and means for the development of new and larger markets for agricultural commodities produced in Vermont;

    (4) to eliminate or reduce the economic waste in the marketing of agricultural commodities; and

    (5) to eliminate unjust impairment of the purchasing power of the agricultural producers of this State. (Added 1983, No. 250 (Adj. Sess.); amended 1993, No. 73, § 1, eff. June 10, 1993.)
