Before considering any proposed wheat development
program or amendment, the Director may
require the sponsors to deposit an amount not to exceed
$5,000 to defray the
expenses of preparing, holding hearings, and conducting the referendum on the

amendment. Any funds received by the Director shall be deposited with the
State Treasurer as ex-officio custodian
and held separate and apart from any other public moneys of this State
in a trust fund designated as the
Wheat Commodity Trust Fund. Money in the Fund may be disbursed only upon a
voucher or order issued by
the Director and paid by a
warrant drawn by the State Comptroller and countersigned by the State
Treasurer. The Director shall order
disbursements from the Wheat Commodity Trust Fund only for payment of the
expenses authorized by this Act.
Any funds collected beyond actual expenses shall be refunded to the sponsors.
The treasurer of the
wheat development board shall reimburse the sponsors in the amount of the
deposit, less any refunds, from fees
received under the program if a program is established.
