Senate Bill 5659 limiting civil liability for beekeepers has an addition regarding rights of people with allergy to bees. Here is the senate substitute bill: SSB – 5696
The new language starts at line 18, page 1 and continues to lines 1-3, page 2, and reads:
The rules (to be developed by the apiary advisory committee) shall provide for specific setbacks that must be made upon the written demand of any person having an allergy to bee stings who owns property within one-quarter mile of the location of the hive or hives.
Please contact your representative to not add the additional language. The additional language is unenforceable as one cannot tell where a honey bee originates once it leaves the hive.
