OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - More than half of the Oklahoma Legislature is receiving a perfect pro-farm voting record for voting on issues supported by the Oklahoma Farm Bureau, like favoring the slaughter of horses and increasing the criminal penalties for cutting livestock fences.

The Oklahoma Farm Bureau announced this week that 29 of the 48 state senators and 55 of the 101 House members received a perfect score this year.

Among the other bills the group supported were measures to limit the liability of agritourism activities, transfer $30 million of motor vehicle taxes for a county road program, create a drought relief fund and reorganize the Oklahoma Water Resources Board.
