Farmer Liability for Certain Products – February 7

posted in: News | 0

8:30am in House Agriculture and Water Resources Committee, Room 310. Last Friday, HB 46 was presented by Representative Bandy. Due to a technical difficulty, the paper copy of the bill was not delivered to the committee so the committee could not review the bill property nor could they act on it. HB 46 will be heard again on Monday at 8:30am. The room was full of supporters of HB 46 and three opponents: two industry lobbyists and NMSU. They did not strongly oppose the bill but suggested that legal issues could be worked on in Judiciary and suggested that HAGC be acted upon as a DO PASS w/o RECOMMENDATION. UPDATE: HB 46 passed the Agriculture and Water Resources Committee Monday morning w/o Recommendation.
