SCS/HB 285 - This act modifies section 252.045, RSMo, and increases the Missouri Conservation Commission's authority to regulate the cutting or removal of vegetation, the entry onto areas closed to the public, and the operation and parking of motor boats on all wildlife refugees, wildlife management areas, state forests, natural areas, lakes, fishing accesses and all land and waters owned, leased or managed by the Commission.
Further, this act incorporates SB 244 and authorizes any Conservation Commission or Department of Conservation employee, who has been trained and certified as an investigative assistant, to detain and thereafter report to the appropriate law enforcement officers any person who has committed or who is committing a violation of rules, laws or regulations pertaining to the wildlife and forestry resources of the state.
The investigative assistant is also authorized to assist in the criminal proceedings against the offender. RONALD J. LEONE
