Requesting that the Joint committee on Government and Finance authorize the study on regulating captive cervid farming as an agricultural business in West Virginia.

Whereas, The state of West Virginia's agricultural economy is an important part of the state's overall economy; and
Whereas, It is important for the state to preserve the family farming opportunities, and to encourage agricultural uses of the natural topography of the state's rural land; and
Whereas, It is important for the state to foster job retention and job creation in the state's rural areas; and
Whereas, The Legislature finds that captive cervid farming is primarily an agricultural pursuit which is separated from and largely unrelated to wildlife management; and
Whereas, The Legislature also finds that cervids should be treated in a manner similar to other farm livestock animals; therefore, be it
Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to study regulating captive cervid farming as an agricultural business in West Virginia; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the Regular Session of the Legislature, 2010, on its findings, conclusions and recommendations, together with drafts of any legislation necessary to effectuate its recommendation; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the expenses necessary to conduct this study, to prepare a report and to draft necessary legislation be paid from legislative appropriations to the Joint Committee on Government and Finance.
