Section 2-15-80

Purpose of division.

The Alabama Livestock Dealers' Financial Responsibility Act requires, among other things, the prompt payment of the purchase price of livestock purchased by livestock dealers. Therefore, the intent and purpose of this division is to enable the Commissioner of Agriculture and Industries to more effectively enforce the requirements of such act by requiring livestock markets to report to the Commissioner of Agriculture and Industries any dealer who purchases livestock without complying with the provisions of said act.
