December 21, 1976 I'AGK 20 HAYS DAILY NEWS Grain Service Changes Fee Method News At Gorham By ANN COOPER Capitol Hill News Service WASHINGTON Com- 10 Killed During Riot NAIROBI, Kenya (UPI) '— Ten persons were killed and 40 seriously wounded during a weekend riot in The town of Chepkuba on the Kenya- Uganda border, the Kenya news agency said Monday. The incident began when several persons broke into a coffee warehouse and began fighting the owners with rocks and long knives known as pangas. Police rushed to the area but at least 10 persons died in the fighting, the agency said. plaints from Kansas and other states have prompted the new Federal Grain inspection Service to change its method of assessing fees for the state and private grain inspection agencies supervised by federal inspectors. FGIS had planned to bill the agencies on the basis of the labor and administrative costs of federal supervision of each agency. The agency had estimated that would cost the Kansas State Grain Inspection Department nearly $163,000 a year. But after some heated discussions of the new fee with slate and private agency officials throughout the country, FGIS last week decided it will charge on the basis of the number of bushels of grain each agency inspects. FGIS official John Marshall said the new formula means state agencies at export points will be paying more for federal supervision than was estimated earlier. Nick Fabac, assistant director of the Kansas agency, also thinks the new formula means Kansas will pay more than the original $163,000 estimate it received from FGIS. However, Fabac said he didn't have any solid figures on the number of bushels of grain his department inspects in a year. But he said, "This is going to be worse. We do a tremendous volume." Marshall said he didn't know what effect the new formula will have on Kansas fees. Federal supervisory costs nationwide should total $5.2 million a year, according to Marshall. is now trying to figure out, based on tUe number of bushels inspected nationwide, how much it must charge per bushel to recover that amount. Marshall said the final figure will be around eight- hundreths 6f a cent per bushel. Because state and private agencies paying the fee will pass it on to their customers, and because inspection isn't mandatory for grain earmarked for domestic use, Marshall and Favac say there could be a decrease in the amount of grain graded in Kansas and elsewhere. Marshall said FGIS hasn't arrived at the final charge per bushel yet. But the agency must decide soon, because it must take some ad- ministrative steps before it can send out its first bills for supervisory costs in February. Although setting a per- bushel fee means more work — because bills 'must be computed each month based on the volume of inspection the previous month — Marshall called the plan more equitable. . Some agencies have a high volume three months of the year but perform few inspections the rest of the time, he said. Their fees will be less than the earlier estimates based on labor costs. However^ Marshall acknowledged that, "No one's going to be happy as long as we're taking money from them.
