Hunting permits, livestock brand inspections, priority school assistance topics of debate this week

Hunting permits, livestock brand inspections, priority school assistance topics of debate this week

By Haley Dover, Nebraska News Service

LINCOLN--Disabled hunters, priority schools and changes in livestock brand inspections were among topics of conversation among lawmakers at the capitol this week.

First-round approval was given March 6 to a bill relating to brand inspection regulations.

Legislative Bill 768, introduced by Sen. Ken Schilz of Ogallala, would have allowed the Nebraska Brand Committee to charge and collect a fee to cover the expenses for livestock brand inspections occurring outside of the brand inspection area. But an amendment drafted by the Agriculture Committee replaced the original version after a 29-0 vote. As amended, the bill would revise the method of calculating inspection fees for feedlots and dairies
