Previously, it was illegal under the state code to take roadkill from alongside public roads. Now, you're still not allowed to pick up wild birds (pheasant hunters, keep your shotguns and put the SUV's away) but mammals are fair game. The governor is expected to sign the bill, which is being touted as a revenue generating measure. Of course, in today's political climate, nothing can be done in any legislature that doesn't cut costs and increase revenues - apparently, this will decrease costs, as police won't have to scoop these animals off the pavement.
