Missouri Governor Signs Farmer Relief Bill That Prohibits Mandatory NAIS

Friday, June 6, 2008, 1:50 PM

by Katie Allen and Julie Harker

Missouri Governor Matt Blunt signed a bill into law today that he says will ensure Missouri agriculture continues to thrive.

Senate Bill 931 is the first collective agriculture bill to pass the General Assembly in three years. Prohibiting the Missouri Department of Agriculture from making the USDA’s National Animal Identification System mandatory and creating a program to provide loan assistance for student veterinarians interested in large animal medicine are two key features.

The bill also provides a sales tax exemption for fencing supplies and a tax credit for the building of stations that sell alternative fuels.
