Current Bill Summary


SB 1145 - This act allows counties without a charter form of government to adopt noise ordinances that prohibit people from creating amplified noise above a specified decibel level, or allowing others to create such noise on their property, without written permission of the county commission.

No noise ordinance shall supersede the immunities granted to firearm ranges or hunting preserves. This act shall not prohibit the lawful discharge of firearms. No governing body of a county of the fourth, third, second, or first classification shall have the authority to enact noise ordinances that govern noise created by a railroad company, telecommunications or wireless company, public utility, rural electric cooperative, municipal utility, or agricultural operation.

This act is identical to HB 2146 (2008).
