PML/CS Subscription

The Idaho Secretary of State’s office maintains the Idaho Central Filing System, which has been certified by the USDA.
When Farm Products Financing Statements (UCC-1F) are filed and recorded by our office, they become part of the Idaho Central
Filing System.

One of the requirements for “Central Filing” certification by the USDA is that we maintain a “Master
List” (ML) of all Farm Products Financing Statements that are filed with our office. The master list is divided into
sections by category of farm product. Those sections are known as “Portions of the Master List” (PML). Each farm
product category is given a “PML number” and each PML is organized alphabetically by debtor name. Each debtor entry
on the PML includes all of that debtor’s information, all of the secured party (lien holder) information, and all
collateral information, including collateral type, location, crop years and amounts.

A complete master list is published and distributed every two weeks as noted on the PML Publication Schedule. A supplement
file is also published that documents all master list changes over the previous two week period. The supplement file is not
necessary to be aware of all lien information, however it does provide additional information for subscribers who require
more detail. Both the master list and the supplemental information are published in three formats – PDF, HTML and.csv (comma

This master list is beneficial to buyers, commission merchants and selling agents as it provides a method to which they
can be aware of persons or business entities which hold a security interest in a particular agricultural product.

Any person or business entity who wishes to receive master list information must register with the Secretary of
State’s office. The fee for this registration is $30.00. The registrant may then subscribe to the PML files
they wish to receive. (See the PML Fee Schedule listed below.)

“Seed and Labor” List

The “Seed and Labor” List consists of all current “Liens in Crops for Seed” and “Liens in Crops for Farm Labor”, as well
as agricultural liens filed by the Idaho State Tax Commission. The list is published every two weeks and includes all debtor,
secured party and collateral information.

The “Seed and Labor” List may be subscribed to as part of a PML registration. To subscribe to receive the “Seed and
Labor” List information use
PML Number 30 in the PML Number box on the registration form. This subscription costs $90.00 annually.

System Upgrade In Progress

Campaign Finance, Lobbyist Reporting, and Online Voter Tools are expected to be offline from April 9th at 5:00 p.m. MDT, through April 12th at 8:00 a.m. MDT to complete a system upgrade.

Per Idaho Code 67-6607, campaign finance is reported monthly during a campaign’s election year. The deadline for the March report falls on Saturday, April 10th. Due to the interruption caused by this upgrade, political treasurers will be allowed to file the March report until 11:59 p.m. MDT on Monday, April 12th.

While we do our best to ensure compliance with all deadlines in statute, the timing of this release is critical to ensure minimal (or no) impact to the May election cycle. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
