Bill Would Stiffen Penalities For Those Trespassing On Farmland

Last updated on Thursday, January 30, 2014

(INDIANAPOLIS) - The Indiana Senate is considering a bill that would stiffen the penalties for trespassing on farmland, resulting in monetary damage of $750 or more of damage.

Bloomington's Mark Stoops was a primary opponent of the bill, until the stipulation was changed to a monetary damage amount.

Stoops says that will better protect animal rights activists.

If the bill passes the full State Senate, it would be considered next by the Indiana House.
