Senate Agriculture & Rural Affairs Committee Approves Two Bills

 

The Senate Agriculture & Rural Affairs Committee today approved two bills, according to Committee Chairman Senator Elder Vogel.

Senate Bill 36, sponsored by Senator Kristin Phillips-Hill (R-28), provides for license fee exemptions for service dogs used by a fire department, sheriff’s office or in the performance of rescue services or medical emergency services. Currently, the fee exemption exists only for any municipal or state police department or agency.

Senate Bill 64, sponsored by Senator Scott Martin (R-13), directs a portion of the state-allocated farmland preservation funding to be set aside annually for use by land trusts.

The bills now go to the full Senate for consideration
