“With the passage of AB 924, California is one step closer to ensuring that people convicted of crime are properly punished,” Bigelow said.
AB 924 would establish a fine of up to $5,000 for anyone convicted of livestock theft. Proceeds collected from the fine would go to the California Department of Food and Agriculture’s Bureau of Livestock Identification (BLID) to help bring closure to current open cases and to help combat future livestock theft.
