C.R.S. Section 35-28-114
Disposition of funds


Any moneys collected by the commissioner pursuant to this article shall be deposited in a bank or other depository approved by the state treasurer, allocated to each marketing order under which they are collected, and disbursed by the commissioner only for the necessary expenses incurred by the board of control and the commissioner and approved by the commissioner with respect to each such separate marketing order. Funds so collected shall be deposited and disbursed in conformity with appropriate rules and regulations prescribed by the commissioner. All such expenditures by the commissioner shall be audited at least annually and a copy of such audit shall be delivered within thirty days after the completion thereof to the governor and the commissioner of agriculture.


Any moneys remaining in such fund, allocable to any particular agricultural commodity affected by a marketing order, at the discretion of the commissioner, may be refunded at the close of any marketing season, upon a pro rata basis, to all persons from whom assessments were collected, or such portion of such moneys as may be recommended by the board of control and approved by the commissioner may be carried over into the next succeeding marketing season whenever the commissioner finds that such moneys may be required to assist in defraying the cost of operating such marketing order in such succeeding season. Upon termination by the commissioner of any marketing order, any moneys remaining, and not required by the commissioner to defray the expenses of such marketing order, shall be returned by the commissioner, upon a pro rata basis, to all persons from whom assessments were collected. If the commissioner finds that the amounts so returnable are so small as to make impractical the computation and remitting of such pro rata refund to such persons, the commissioner may use the moneys in such fund to defray the expenses incurred by him in the formulation, issuance, administration, or enforcement of any subsequent marketing order for such commodity.
