This week, the House Agriculture Committee heard what was arguably one of the most important pieces of legislation to agriculturalists in Montana. Senate Bill 155—Prohibit Local Regulation of Agricultural Seed – aims to provide consistency in our state’s seed laws and protect the private property rights of Montana’s family farmers and ranchers. This is a piece of legislation written as a result of collaboration among Montana’s leading agricultural organizations and their grassroots memberships.
