The Seed Bill will protect the private property rights of landowners by preventing a potential patchwork of regulation on a county-by-county basis. It’s important that Montana’s farmers and ranchers now reach out to Governor Bullock to tell him how much we value our right to make our own decisions about what we plant and grow in our fields.
We’re well into the second half of the Legislative session, and it was another busy week in Helena. At this point, many of the bills we see before committees are bills we’ve previously testified on that are completing the second half of their journey through the legislative process.
Montana’s seed bill is a proactive measure to keep seed regulation decisions in the state’s hands so that local farmers and ranchers know exactly where to look for guidance, just like they do with fertilizer laws. Please reach out to your urban Legislators especially to share why the regulatory consistency offered in the seed bill is important to you.
