It will save the state “hundreds of thousands of dollars”
Members of the Senate Natural Resources Committee are considering AB264 Tuesday.
The bill originally prohibited unauthorized people from feeding or taking wild horses from state lands, but a proposed amendment is expected to be introduced at the bill’s hearing that would add a new dimension to the proposal.
The amendment would allow the state government to enter into agreements with advocacy groups to help manage the Virginia Range herds of wild horses.
Republican Assemblyman Jim Wheeler of Minden is proposing the amendment. He says it will save the state “hundreds of thousands of dollars” by letting advocacy groups get involved.
