Explanation: 

HB 655, introduced by Reprentative Chris Dinkins (Republican - District 144) is a minor cleanup bill that simply adds a definition of the term "landowner's agent" as it relates to the ability to designate someone to eliminate feral hogs on one's property.  Apparently existing law did not properly define the term, leaving it ambigious who a landowner could delegate such tasks to.

The bill defines a landowner's agent as "any person who has permission from a landowner to be present on the landowner's property".   Seems pretty straightforward to me.
