Missouri Cattlemen’s Association supported legislation last session requiring a company to pay farmers for the land used to install an electrical transmission line. Executive Vice President Mike Deering tells Brownfield private property rights should be respected.
“This session, we’ll also take a closer look at the Public Service Commission and see if we can expand that to make sure there are farm and ranch voices on that commission. They’re the ones who decide who gets eminent domain and who doesn’t.”
MCA’s past president Bruce Mershon says Missouri cattle producers would like to see updates to personal property taxes.
