House Transportation Accountability Committee Dealing With Roadkill Legislation

Representative Tim Taylor of Bunceton says the House Transportation Accountability Committee heard its first pieces of legislation this week.

Representative Haden’s legislation focuses on the disposal of dead animals found along roads in the state. Discussion included the proper disposal of dead deer regarding Chronic Wasting Disease. Taylor says past work experience prepared him for this discussion.

The other piece of legislation related to dead animal disposal was from Democratic Representative Paula Brown of Hazelwood. Both bills have public hearings scheduled for a later date.
