Liability for Timber Theft

Senate Bill Number: 
38

SB 38 would hold a person liable for three times the stumpage value and three time the amount of property damage due to timber theft.

Bill Sponsor(s): 
Sen. C.B. Embry, Jr.

KFTC’s platform supports strengthening present timber theft laws in Kentucky. This bill is not aimed at that. While it gives timber theft victims another lever for receiving compensation, it does little to stop the crime from happening.
