HB 1249 Headed to the Governor for Her Signature

Thu, 07 Apr 2011 6:43:04 CDT

HB 1249 Headed to the Governor for Her Signature Oklahoma Farm Bureau Vice President for Public Policy, Tyler Norvell, says that several measures he and his OFB legislative team have been following are moving right now in the state legislature.

At the top of the list is HB 1249. HB 1249 by Rep. Wade Rousselot and Senator Kim David removes language allowing persons in the sole process of retrieving their domestic livestock or other animals to enter land of another. This measure has survived several attempts to amend it and was passed earlier this week by the full Senate. It came out of the Senate "clean" meaning that it was changed from the House language, which allow it to go on to Governor Mary Fallin for her signature. Both Farm Bureau as well as the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association have been behind this measure from the start.

Norvell also mentioned several other measures that Farm Bureau is watching closely as the lawmakers begin to send completed and agreed to bills to Governor Fallin for her consideration.
