Commodity market development councils. Makes changes to the definition of an agricultural commodity. Transfers the responsibility for certain duties concerning commodity market development from the director of the department of agriculture to the Purdue University dean of agriculture (dean). Requires the dean to conduct a referendum on the continuation of the commodity market development council if the amount of refund requests under the commodity market development program exceeds 25% of the amount collected under the program for a fiscal year. (Current law requires a referendum one time every three years.) Allows a state commodity fee to be collected for an agricultural commodity even if a fee is collected under a federal program for promotion or market development.
