SB 350 - This act regulates individuals who provide amusement hay rides. A "hay ride" is defined as a transport of people by an animal, tractor, trailer, or other vehicle for the purpose of amusement or pleasure. This term does not include trams used for transporting persons to a specific location or attraction. A "hay ride enterprise" is defined as operating hay rides more than twice a year for a fee.

The operation of a hay ride enterprise is prohibited unless the owner provides the Department of Public Safety with proof of:

1. A permit issued by the Department and affixed to the hay ride equipment;

2. A general liability insurance policy of not less than one million per incident, or a bond in the same dollar amount, or cash or other acceptable surety; and

3. Proof of liability insurance on the animal, tractor, trailer, or other vehicle used to operate the hay ride enterprise.

Any person who knowingly violates this act will be guilty of a Class B misdemeanor. Any person who pleads guilty or is found guilty will be presumed negligent, but may rebut the presumption.
