NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A4128
 
SPONSOR: Magee
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the agriculture and markets law, in relation to includ- ing working farm dogs necessary for the control and protection of live- stock within the meaning of the term "crops, livestock and livestock products" for purposes of provisions of law relating to agricultural districts   PURPOSE OF BILL: To include "working farm dogs" within the meaning of the term "crops, livestock and livestock products" to provide protection from an unknow- ing public.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1: Section 1 amends Subdivision 2 of section 301 of the agricul- ture and markets law by adding paragraph K: "Working farm dogs necessary for the control and protection of livestock as described in paragraph e of this subdivision." Section 2 sets forth the immediate effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: "Working farm dogs" provide an important. service to farmers, whether that is protecting apple orchards from deer or herding sheep, and often times have to work in inclement weather, which would typically violate animal cruelty laws. By including "working farm dogs" within. the defi- nition of "crops, livestock and livestock products" it re-defines the "working farm dog" as "livestock" instead of a domesticated animal, thus saving the farmer from an unknowing public.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2013-2014: A.10079   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
