§ 10-4-100 - Legislative intent and findings
. Legislative intent and findings
It is the intent and purpose of this part to enable producers to have sufficient time to cure, prepare, and market their flue-cured leaf tobacco in a proper and orderly manner. It is found by the General Assembly that the provisions of this part are necessary to the proper marketing of flue-cured leaf tobacco.
It is further found that external disruptive forces and influences upon buyers and sales opportunity have operated to effect discrimination and disadvantage upon flue-cured leaf tobacco producers in this state in the free entry and sale of their tobacco in interstate commerce. It is the intent and purpose of this part to eliminate discrimination in the entry and sale of tobacco in commerce by providing for equitable allocation of sales opportunity and by providing for licensing of flue-cured leaf tobacco auction sales which will optimize the movement and sale in commerce of tobacco produced in this state and eliminate discrimination against such movement and sale.
