Text of measure
The language that appeared on the ballot:
- This initiative would amend state law to prohibit all new alternative livestock ranches, also known as game farms. Existing game farms would be allowed to continue operating, but would be prohibited from transferring their license to any other party. They would also be prohibited from allowing shooting of game farm animals for any type of fee. The proposal also repeals provisions of the law concerning applications for expansion of game farms. If approved by voters, the measure would take effect immediately.
- This measure would eliminate $104,000 in annual costs of review of game farm applications and expansions, as well as $3,850 yearly revenues from application fees. Abolishing fee shooting may force closure of some game farms, which could result in less revenue to the state and lower overall regulation costs.
