The Missouri House perfected a pair of agricultural bills during Tuesday morning’s session.
- Rep. Tracy McCreery spoke in favor of the bill, saying the new regulation would help streamline the process for Missouri’s agricultural workers.
HB 574 was also perfected Tuesday morning; Rep. Kent Haden’s bill would only allow representatives from the state and federal Department of Agriculture, county authorities, or any other entity with regulatory authority to inspect agricultural facilities.
- McCreery offered an amendment to include the Highway Patrol and municipal police department to the list of regulatory entities, but her amendment was voted down.
- Other legislators voiced concerns about possible unregulated pollution and loopholes for those operating out of their own homes.
