HELENA, Montana - The Montana State Senate acting at the request of thousands of its citizens has enacted a new roadkill bill.
The bill, which was spearheaded by Senator Wendell T. Tibbinsky [R-Missoula] states that citizens of Montana will now be allowed to salvage meat from wild animals that are killed on the state's highways.
The bill easily passed with a vote of 47-3. Senator Tibbinsky remarked that the provisions of The Montana Roadkill Bill fall under the guidance of Montana's 55 Second Rule.
The senator from Missoula explained that most states adhere to the old 5 Second Rule regarding any kind of dropped food product.
But he gladly pointed out that by using Montana's 55 Second Rule, it will help to prevent literally tons of salvageable meat from spoiling and having to pay state employees to pick up the useless meat.
A Reminder. May 3, is National Tuba Day except in Maine where there are no tubas.
