Senate Bill 778: Restrict ad hoc road-end “marinas,” passed 30-6 in the Senate. To establish that unless a deed, easement or other recorded dedication expressly provides for it, a waterfront road end may not be used for boat hoists or docks; for mooring between midnight and sunrise, or for any activity that obstructs access to a lake or stream. Local governments could ban or regulate uses that are not specified in property owners’ deeds, easements, etc.
Sen. Arlan Meekhof, R-West Olive: Y

House Bill 4403: Revise jury duty detail, passed 35-0 in the Senate. To require county jury boards to send a juror qualifications questionnaire to persons who previously failed to return the questionnaire. This would prevent jury duty dodgers from avoiding future calls to duty.
Sen. Arlan Meekhof: Y

Senate Bill 717: Create new “hunters helping farmers” program, passed 36-0 in the Senate. To create a new government program that matches farmers suffering excessive crop damage from deer with hunters who want to take more antlerless deer (as already permitted in specific cases for crop damage reduction purposes).
Sen. Arlan Meekhof: Y
