State Net Capitol Journal Legislative Updates: Bison and Buffalo in Montana

ENVIRONMENT: The MONTANA Senate approves SB 256, a bill that would hold the state Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks liable for any damage that wild bison cause to private property in the Treasure State. The bill, which also requires the state to estimate private-property damages for any bison relocation plan, moves to the House (MISSOULIAN). • Still in MONTANA, the Senate approves SB 305, which defines "wild" buffalo as those which have never been held in captivity or owned by a human. It also moves to the House (MISSOULIAN). • The NEW MEXICO House rejects HB 316, which would have barred coyote-killing contests in the Land of Enchantment (SANTA FE NEW MEXICAN).
