Summary of the Truly Agreed Version of the Bill


Currently, owners or lessees of real property may prohibit
persons from trespassing on their property by placing purple
paint marks on trees or fence posts surrounding the property.
This bill allows them the option of placing a purple cap or mark
on at least the top two inches of a fence post.  The bottom of
the cap or mark must be at least three feet but not more than
five and one-half feet above the ground and the posts must not be
more than 36 feet apart and be readily visible to designate the
property as posted against trespass.  Prior to applying the cap
or mark on fence posts, owners or lessees on both sides of the
fence to be marked must agree to the posting of the property.
