(This amendment restores state support to provide technical assistance to livestock farmers in dealing with wildlife depredation from coyotes and black vultures. The cuts proposed in House Bill 1500 as introduced have eliminated the state match for this program which will mean an equal loss of dollars from USDA APHIS Wildlife Services for these activities.)
