FWP may be liable for property damage
A bill regarding property damage created by wild bison, passed second reading on the Senate floor today without proposed House amendments.
Senate Bill 256 would make Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks liable for private property damages caused by wild bison. The bill would require an estimation of private property damage, and costs the department would have to pay for. Bill sponsor, Senator Eric Moore (R) Miles City says small changes still need to be made to the amended version of the bill.
"We need to clean that language up so it's specific. I've asked to vote for a non-concurrence."
In a 39 to 9 decision, the Senate voted to not include the House amendments.
