Highlight

A noncredit-sale receipt holder of an insolvent grain warehouseman is entitled to participate in an insolvency trust fund administered by the Public Service Commission, and a credit-sale contractor is not entitled to participate in that trust fund.
A licensed grain warehouseman is insolvent when the licensee refuses, neglects, or is unable upon proper demand to (1) make payment for grain purchased or marketed by the licensee, or (2) make redelivery or payment for grain stored.
The PSC is entitled to costs and expenses incurred in administrating a grain warehouseman's insolvency trust fund.
