State fair ID rule comes under fire

Two legislators say they’ll ride to the rescue of kids like those kicked out of the Colorado State Fair this year after questions arose about whether they followed a controversial new registration requirement.
The two competitors were disqualified after officials concluded they did not follow the rule requiring them to identify the “premises” where they raised their animals.
The rule mirrors a voluntary federal animal identification program.
State Rep. Cory Gardner, R-Yuma, and state Sen. Greg Brophy, R-Wray, announced Thursday they would introduce legislation next year that would prohibit state agencies from requiring participation in voluntary federal programs.
