Notice of Intent Filed with State Register –  LAC 7:XXXV.1127,135, and 321 (Weights and Measures)

September 11, 2020

Release date: 9-10-2020, Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry filed a Notice of Intent with the State Register giving public notice that the Department intends to amend rules LAC 7:XXXV.1127,135, and 321. The proposed change to LAC 7:XXXV.127.A.clarifies that the owner of a weighing and measuring device is responsible for registering the device with LDAF. The proposed change to LAC 7:XXXV.127.D eliminates the regulation language that scanning devices be registered by make, model, and serial number.  The repeal of LAC 7:XXXV.135 is necessary because the existing rule is in conflict with 7 CFR Part 60 & 65 (USDA Country of Origin Law).  The proposed changes to LAC 7:XXXV.321, include the deletion of the words Anti-Knock Index (AKI), which is no longer used and replaces it with “automotive fuel rating”.    Section G will clarify signage rules for retailers using street signs for advertising fuel prices.  The proposed rule states that the prices advertised must be equal to the highest price for the offered product unless it is clearly specified that conditions apply for a lower price.

Interested persons may submit writtens comments, data, opinions, and arguments regarding the proposed Rule.  Written submissions must be directed to Bobby Fletcher, Ph.D., Director of Weights and Measures, Department of Agriculture and Forestry, 5825 Florida Blvd, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 70806 and must be received no later than 4:00 p.m. on October 10, 2020.
