Sen. Craig Estes Files HB 174 – Stray Bison Bill

During November Board meeting, the vote was taken one last time to determine that the TBA would pursue legislation during the 33rd session of Texas legislature, without dissention or concern among Texas bison communities and stakeholders. HB 174 simply asks for the inclusion of 'Stray Bison' to be included in the language of the Ag Code under estray.

Discussion was held during the meeting that included a report from Donald Beard, Caprock Canyons State Park, who researched and concluded a position of no-controversy from TP&W. The board voted unanimously to pursue support for this legislation, as was the case during the first meeting of the current board in May 2012 during the Texas Bison Conference in Lubbock.
