SENATE SUBSTITUTE AMENDMENT 1,
TO 2011 SENATE BILL 396
February 27, 2012 - Offered by Senator Harsdorf.
1An Act to create
20.115 (2) (e) of the statutes; relating to: the livestock premises
2registration program and making an appropriation.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Current law generally requires a person who keeps livestock at a location in this
state to register the location with the Department of Agriculture, Trade and
Consumer Protection (DATCP). The law authorizes DATCP to create exemptions
from the registration requirement by rule. Current law also authorizes DATCP to
contract with an agent to administer the livestock premises registration program.
This substitute amendment appropriates $250,000 from the general fund to
DATCP for administration of the livestock premises registration program in fiscal
year 2012-13. The substitute amendment transfers $250,000 from the working
lands fund to the general fund in fiscal year 2012-13. The substitute amendment
also requires DATCP to make a budget proposal for providing sufficient future
funding for the program.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
