“…The Department of Conservation would pay you
$250.00 $500.00 to hunt deer with your car. What’s not to like?…”

HOUSE BILL NO. 317 [pdf]
98TH GENERAL ASSEMBLY
INTRODUCED BY REPRESENTATIVE BROWN (57).
0822H.01I D. ADAM CRUMBLISS, Chief Clerk
To amend chapter 252, RSMo, by adding thereto one new section relating to reimbursement for automobile damage inflicted by deer.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:
Section A. Chapter 252, RSMo, is amended by adding thereto one new section, to be known as section 252.270, to read as follows:
252.270. The department of conservation shall reimburse any automobile owner in an amount up to five hundred dollars for damages sustained to the automobile due to hitting or being hit by a deer. The department of conservation shall establish rules and regulations to implement the provisions of this section. Any rule or portion of a rule, as that term is defined in section 536.010, that is created under the authority delegated in this section shall become effective only if it complies with and is subject to all of the provisions of chapter 536 and, if applicable, section 536.028. This section and chapter 536 are nonseverable, and if any of the powers vested with the general assembly under chapter 536 to review, to delay the effective date, or to disapprove and annul a rule are subsequently held unconstitutional, then the grant of rulemaking authority and any rule proposed or adopted after August 28, 2015, shall be invalid and void.

It’ll probably be easy to get a sponsor in the Senate.
