Analysis: As it stands, in the event of livestock wandering onto state roads and causing an accident, the burden is on the owner of the livestock to prove that he was not negligent in allowing the livestock to wander onto the road per state law.

Abandoned manufactured or mobile homes; establish procedure for disposition. Alive
Analysis: This bill outlines the procedure through which the state may dispose of abandoned mobile or manufactured homes. This is not a primary function of government.
