Proposal would reduce beekeepers’ liability against damage claims

Republican Rep. Dick Stein of Norwalk introduced House Bill 392 in the Ohio House of Representatives to protect beekeepers as long as they adhere to the best practices of colony management and to keep municipal courts free of unnecessary claims.
