Senate Bill 1252 — Taylor grazing act

Senate Bill 1252 — Taylor grazing act

Parrish Miller
February 7, 2022

Bill Description: Senate Bill 1252 would ensure that under Idaho law, individuals or businesses could seek compensation if someone violates their grazing preference rights.

Rating: +1

Does it violate the spirit or the letter of either the U.S. Constitution or the Idaho Constitution? Examples include restrictions on speech, public assembly, the press, privacy, private property, or firearms. Conversely, does it restore or uphold the protections guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution or the Idaho Constitution?

Senate Bill 1252 would amend sections 25-901 and 25-902, Idaho Code, to state that "it is the intent of the legislature to ensure that grazing preference rights are compensable property rights under Idaho law."

The bill says, "Any diminishment of, or failure to recognize, the grazing preference must be compensated as a taking of a real property right recognized pursuant to section 55-101, Idaho Code, including but not limited to cases where any portion of the federal grazing allotment associated with the grazing preference right is sold, exchanged, or otherwise disposed of and conveyed to the state or any other entity."

The purpose of this bill is to recognize and protect the property rights inherent in a federal grazing allotment.
