Weights and Measures, Powers and Duties of
Department of Agriculture.
The department of agriculture shall have the care and custody of the authorized public standards of weights and measures and of balances and other apparatus of all kinds owned by the state. It shall maintain the state standards in good order and submit them at least once in every ten years to the national bureau of standards for verification. It shall compare and adjust by the state standards all county, municipal and other official standard weights, measures, balances and measuring devices which may be sent or brought to it for that purpose, and shall seal the same when found or made to conform to the state standards, by stamping upon each the letter “I” and the last two figures of the year in which the said comparison and adjustment have been made, with seals which it will have and keep for that purpose: provided, that it may refuse to compare and seal any weights, measures, balances or measuring devices as standards for any county, municipality or public offices which do not conform to the type approved by the national bureau of standards for such use. It shall enforce all laws now existing or which may hereafter be enacted in any manner whatever relating to weights and measures and false weights. [1905; last amended 1913.)
[ED. NOTE.-In the Idaho Code Annotated 1947, following the foregoing section, it is stated: “Legislation on the subject of weights and measures may be found as follows: R. S., Secs. 1250, 1251; 1890–1891, p. 204; 1889, p. 142; 1903, p. 87. An act of 1905, p. 364, am. 1907, p. 340, formed the basis of R. C., Secs. 1541-1545. An act of 1909, p. 231, H. B. 172, abolished the office of dairy, food and oil commissioner, the then ex officio inspector and sealer of weights and measures, and transferred his duties to the dairy, food and sanitary inspector. An act of 1913, ch. 84, p. 241, was a more detailed law and superseded most of the former law. Its repealing clause being general, however, Compiled Laws retained some of the provisions of R. C., Secs. 1541, 1543 and all of Sec. 1545. The law was reenacted as C. L., ch. 109. It provided for a state sealer of weights and meas
"Session Laws 1919, ch. 8, Sec. 51, p. 69, repealed C. L. 109; 1; Sec. 38 of the same act (Scc. 67-3401 herein) abolished the offices of the state sealer and his deputies, and Sec. 26 (Sec. 67-2601 herein) vested their powers and duties in the department of agriculture. The substitutions of offices and officials authorized by that act have been made accordingly, the text of pre-existing law not being changed
except in so far as necessary in making such substitutions.') Sec. 71–102. Inspection of weights and measures on request;
The department of agriculture may try and prove weights, measures, balances and other measuring devices on request, for any person, corporation or institution, and when the same are found or made
to conform to the state standards, and otherwise fulfill such reasonable requirements as it shall make, the department may seal the same with a seal which it shall have and keep for that purpose.  Sec. 71–103. Records; annual report; regulations.
The department of agriculture shall keep a record of all of the weights, measures, balances or other measuring devices, sealed or condemned by it, and shall make an annual report to the governor on or before January 1, of each year, a copy of which shall be filed with the national bureau of standards. It shall issue, from time to time, regulations for the guidance of county, municipal and all other inspectors or sealers of weights and measures, and the said regulations shall govern the procedure to be followed by the aforesaid officers in the discharge of their duties.  Sec. 71–104. Additional records and reports.
The department of agriculture shall keep records of all weights and measures, balances and measuring devices inspected, sealed or condemned by it, giving the name of the owner or agent, the place of business, the date of inspection, and kind of apparatus so inspected, sealed or condemned, and shall make a biennial report of the same to the governor on or before the first day of December, giving in addition to the above, an inventory of the standards and apparatus in its possession, and such other information as the department may deem important.  Sec. 71–105. Testing, sealing, condemning and tagging of
weights and measures; fees for testing.
The department of agriculture shall try and prove all weights, measures, balances and measuring devices used in the State of Idaho, and when the same are found or made to conform to the authorized standards, it shall seal and mark such weights, measures, balances and measuring devices with a seal to be kept by it for that purpose, and issue its certificate showing that such weights, measures, balances and measuring devices have been inspected and do conform to the authorized standards. The department of agriculture shall have power to collect from all persons, firms and corporations who are using weights, measures, balances, and measuring and weighing devices in the state of Idaho an annual inspection fee, with the exception that such fee shall be waived on devices owned by the state of Idaho. The anual fee for such inspection shall be as follows: For each portable scale one dollar; for each counter scale fifty cents; for each stationary warehouse scale two dollars; for each wagon, motor truck or stock scale five dollars; for each retail gasoline measuring device, fifty cents; for each vehicle tank under five hundred gallon capacity, seven dollars and fifty cents; for each vehicle tank over five
