CA Food & Agric Code Section 62718

The pools established shall be administered by the director. Each distributor shall deduct from moneys owed producers and pay to the director the amount necessary to cover the cost of administering the pool plan, but not to exceed two cents ($0.02) per hundredweight of fluid milk. The amount of such fee shall be paid to the director on or before the 30th day following the last day of the month in which such fluid milk or fluid cream was received. The director may fix such fee at a lesser amount and may adjust such fee from time to time. In the event any distributor fails to pay to the director the fee provided for in this section on or before the date specified in this section, the director may add to such unpaid fee an amount not exceeding 10 percent of such unpaid fee to defray the cost of enforcing the collection of such unpaid fee. The distributor shall not be entitled to pass this penalty on to the producer. All moneys received under the provisions of this section shall be deposited in the State Treasury to the credit of the Department of Agriculture Fund.
