Beau Baird’s (R-Greencastle) (seated, second from right) bill into law helping Hoosier farmers fight harmful and invasive weeds Thursday, June 13, 2019, at the Statehouse in Indianapolis. Farmers are battling herbicide-resistant super weeds that require expensive specialized treatment plans to eradicate. This new law ensures these plants are identified quickly, saving the state and farmers money. House Enrolled Act 1492 is Baird’s first authored legislation to become law since he took office. It goes into effect on July 1.


State Rep. Beau Baird (R-Greencastle) represents House District 44, which includes

all of Putnam County and portions of Clay, Morgan, Owen and Parke counties.
