DIGEST OF SB189 (Updated March 5, 2008 2:20 pm - DI 84)

Various issues concerning agriculture and animals. Removes the restriction that only counties that contain more than $20,000,000 in property tax value may make an allowance to an interstate fair corporation. Requires that the petition for an allowance for a tax levy to support county 4-H clubs be published in a newspaper in the county. (Current law requires that the petition be printed in a newspaper that is published and printed in the county.) Prohibits tampering or altering with an identification mark on goats and cervids that have reacted positively to a tuberculin test. Removes a conflicting provision that prohibits the state board of animal health from adopting rules to exempt certain testing requirements from animals that present little risk of spreading disease. Provides that certain persons who are not the owner of an animal but have reason to suspect that the animal has a dangerous, contagious, or infectious disease are required to make a report to the state veterinarian or local health officer within 48 hours. Provides that the stockholders or members of an agricultural cooperative created before February 23, 1925, by majority vote, may elect to be governed by certain agricultural cooperative laws by limiting its stockholders or membership. (Current law provides for a vote limiting only membership.) (The introduced version of this bill was prepared by the code revision commission.)
