Another dead bill: guns, fertilizer, bestiality

Looks like the House won't take up the omnibus agriculture bill (SB382) that includes 1) an NRA-backed gun provision allowing people to keep guns in their cars, 2) an effort to preempt Pinellas County's ban on fertilizer sales during the summer and... 3) a ban on sex with animals.

A key difference was the fertilizer provision. The Senate voted 21-18 to adopt an amendment favored by environmentalists and opposed by the fertilizer industry. Republican members of the House voted for a provision that would stop Pinellas' ban on sales.
