NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A2552
 
SPONSOR: Lalor
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the agriculture and markets law, in relation to shared animal ownership agreements   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Relates shared animal ownership agreement.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1: Shared animal ownership is any contractual arrangement under which an individual: 1. acquires an ownership interest in a milk-produc- ing animal; 2. agrees to pay another for, reimburse another for, or otherwise accept financial responsibility for the care and boarding of the milk-producing animal at the dairy farm; and 3. is entitled to receive a proportionate share of the animal's raw milk production as a condition of the contractual arrangement.   JUSTIFICATION: Currently the ability for consumers to access raw milk is limited because they have to own the animal that produces the milk. Most consum- ers can not provide for farm animals on their properties. Allowing consumers to purchase a share of an animal, kept on at a dairy farm, and receive a proportionate share of the raw milk production of the animal will provide consumers with more choices.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: A.9888 of 2013-2014, A.3689 of 2015-2016   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the ninetieth day after it shall have become a law. Provided that any rules on this act on its effective date are immediately authorized and directed to be completed on or before such date.
