No IDA Fee Increases*
In the version of the budget that the Illinois legislators sent to Governor Blagojevich a few weeks ago, there were no proposed fee increases for Department of Agriculture programs. Earlier in the year, IFCA was aware of several fee increase proposals including pesticide product registration fees and scale fees. While the budget is far from being finalized (the Governor is still waiting to act on it), at this point in time the IDA fee increases are absent. The * in the title of this article means we don't take our eye off the legislative process, as things can be killed, resurrected, put on life support, killed again and re-incarnated in innumerable ways.
