Rep. Long Eliminates Fees for Specialty Farm Product Buyers

Springfield, IL…State Representative Jerry Long (R-Streator) had his first bill signed into law today.  House Bill 3189 repeals the Specialty Farm Product Buyers Act and passed with bipartisan support.

The Specialty Farm Product Buyers Act made buyers register with the state and pay an annual renewal fee.  Rep. Long was reached for comment after the signing ceremony.

“Administrative costs to collect these annual fees exceeded the amount of money we were collecting from them.  The goal here in the General Assembly these days should be to make our government run more efficiently and save taxpayer dollars by eliminating waste and fraud, so I will continue to seek reforms that cut back on spending.”
