Bill would rewrite livestock-cruelty rules

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP)--Nebraska's laws prohibiting livestock cruelty may be rewritten this year, but the changes would be largely clerical.

Sen. Deb Fischer of Valentine introduced a bill (LB 865) Jan. 11 to create a new section of state law dealing with livestock welfare.

The bill doesn't add new rules or change the penalties for cruelty to livestock.

The measure is designed to reduce confusion in the law. Currently, the livestock-cruelty laws are in the same section of law that outlines what's considered cruelty to pets, and it wasn't always clear which rules applied to pets and which applied to livestock.

Fischer's bill would move all the livestock rules to a separate area of the law.
