Kentucky HB 495 has passed the legislature! The bill has been sent to the Governor, the final stage in the process. This
bill would limit the agency to a voluntary program unless the USDA takes final action in accordance with the Administrative
Procedures Act. HB 495 includes protections against coercion. For more information, go to http://www.libertyark.net/states/ky.html
This goes in line with what the Equine Working Group originally
wrote and submitted to the USDA....
The Kentucky Department of Agriculture has
yet again proposed regulations to require certificates of veterinary inspection (CVI) for intrastate movements of all animals,
including everything from private sales to trail rides. And since the CVI would require "official individual identification
... except where group/lot numbers are approved" and the "name and address of the owner/agent," the CVI requirements
will effectively impose many of the NAIS requirements without calling it "NAIS". The land would not be labeled with a premises
registration number in a federal database (for now), but people will still be subjected to significant burdens on their privacy,
time, and finances.

Premises Registration will be an "Official" USDA unique seven Character identifier.
In the New User Guide it states on Page 22:
The premises identification number (PIN) is assigned permanently to a geophysical location.
If an owner or entity sells his/her farm, the next operators of the premises use the original premises identification number
that had been assigned to that location. If the seller buys a new location to build a new operation that never had livestock,
he/she would register that location and obtain a new premises identification number (PIN).
Premises Identification = Encumbrance
