Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill requires the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer
Protection to make a grant to an organization that uses the grant funds to reimburse
the costs of purchasing and installing rollover protective structures for farm tractors.
Under the bill, an organization with a purpose of addressing human health and
safety associated with rural and agricultural work, life, and environments receives
the grant and must spend at least 70 percent of the grant funds to reimburse the costs
of purchasing and installing rollover protective structures for farm tractors. The bill
provides that for each reimbursement made, the organization must pay 70 percent
of the first $1,670 in purchase and installation costs and all of the costs in excess of
$1,670. The bill also requires the organization to report annually to DATCP on its
expenditures of grant funds until all of the grant funds are expended.
For further information see the state fiscal estimate, which will be printed as
an appendix to this bill.
