This bill would amend the law designating the membership of the State Agriculture Development Committee (SADC) to allow for alternate members, in the absence at an SADC meeting of one of the four appointed members who are actively engaged in farming. Currently, the SADC consists of 11 members, including six citizens of the State, appointed by the Governor with the advice and consent of the Senate, four of whom are actively engaged in farming, and two of whom represent the general public. This bill would allow, in the absence of an appointed member actively engaged in farming at a publicly noticed meeting, an alternate member to be chosen to serve for that member at the meeting. The alternate member would (1) be chosen by the President, in consultation with the Vice President, of the State Board of Agriculture, and (2) be a past member of the State Board of Agriculture, who had not been removed from office for cause, or a past member of the SADC. This bill is intended to ensure that farmers remain represented on the SADC even in the absence of one of the appointed members.
