Pawlenty signs bovine TB plan into law
ST. PAUL (AP) -- A plan to eradicate bovine tuberculosis from Minnesota cattle is now law.
Gov. Tim Pawlenty says the disease is a threat to Minnesota's livestock industry. He spoke at a signing ceremony for the $6.2 million bill.
The plan includes paying ranchers to slaughter their herds and putting up fences to keep deer from spreading the disease.
