STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
This legislation repeals the limitation on the number of tires
that a Confined Animal Feeding Operation may utilize to secure
waste or silage. At the same time it requires that those tires be
utilized in an effort that prevents the pooling of stagnate
water, which breeds infestations of mosquitos. This legislation
would lessen these mosquito breeding habitats and help reduce the
threat of the West Nile Virus.
