Rangeland improvement act
RANGELAND – Adds to existing law to establish the Rangeland Improvement Act.

RS31039C1 / H0468

This legislation directs the Idaho Department of Agriculture to seek funding for and carry out grazing improvement projects statewide through the Grazing Board Central Committee which was originally created by the Taylor Grazing Act of 1934 and reauthorized by the Federal Land Policy Management Act (FLPMA).

This legislation causes no additional expenditure of funds at the state or local level of government nor does it cause an increase or decrease in revenue for state or local government, therefore the legislation has no fiscal impact.
