  3 11                           EXPLANATION
  3 12    This bill amends Code section 163.43, which provides that a
  3 13 breeding bull leased by a person required to be licensed by
  3 14 the department of agriculture and land stewardship must be
  3 15 accompanied by a health certificate issued by a veterinarian.
  3 16    The bill removes a requirement that the breeding bull must
  3 17 be tested for tuberculosis.  It retains a requirement that the
  3 18 breeding bull must react negatively to a test for brucellosis
  3 19 (sometimes referred to as "Bang's disease").  The bill
  3 20 rewrites a provision requiring that the test be conducted
  3 21 within 60 days prior to the lease.  It provides that the test
  3 22 must be administered within 12 months prior to the date that
  3 23 the certificate is issued.  The bill provides that the health
  3 24 certificate must state that an imported breeding bull
  3 25 satisfies state importation requirements.  A person who
  3 26 violates chapter 163 is guilty of a simple misdemeanor.
  3 27    The bill makes a number of stylistic changes in order to
  3 28 enhance readability without changing current law or practice.
