Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill requires the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer
Protection to make a grant to an organization that uses the grant funds to reimburse
the costs of purchasing and installing rollover protection structures for farm
tractors. Under the bill, an organization with a purpose of addressing human health
and safety associated with rural and agricultural work, life, and environments
receives the grant and must spend at least 70 percent of the grant funds to reimburse
the costs of purchasing and installing rollover protection structures for farm
tractors. The bill provides that for each reimbursement made, the organization must
pay 70 percent of the first $1,670 in purchase and installation costs and all of the
costs in excess of $1,670. The bill also requires the organization to report annually
to DATCP on its expenditures of grant funds until all of the grant funds are
expended.
For further information see the state fiscal estimate, which will be printed as
an appendix to this bill.
