AGO Opinions with Topic: ELIGIBILITY FOR ALLOCATION OF FUNDS UNDER CHAPTER 15.76 RCW
AGLO 1979 No. 28 >  August 15, 1979
FAIRS - AGRICULTURE - FLOWER SHOWS - PLOWING MATCHES - ELIGIBILITY FOR ALLOCATION OF FUNDS UNDER CHAPTER 15.76 RCW
FAIRS ‑- AGRICULTURE ‑- FLOWER SHOWS ‑- PLOWING MATCHES ‑- ELIGIBILITY FOR ALLOCATION OF FUNDS UNDER CHAPTER 15.76 RCW

(1) Those shows dealing with only a single subject, such as a flower show or a plowing match, do not by themselves constitute "agricultural fairs" so as to qualify for the allocation of state funds under the provisions of chapter 15.76 RCW.

(2) The director of Agriculture does not have the authority, under existing law, to allocate funds to a county or community with more than one qualifying agricultural fair and then allow the county or community to decide on how the money will be allocated between two or more fairs.
