H.B. 683 was introduced in 2013.

If enacted, the bill would have criminalized “interference with agricultural operations,” defined in part as: (1)recording images or sound at an agricultural operation without the owner’s consent; (2) using the internet to upload, download, transfer or send image or sound recordings made at agricultural operations; (3) obtaining access to an agricultural operation under false pretenses; and (4) applying for employment at an agricultural operation with the intent to create an image or sound recording at that operation, knowing at the time of application that making such recordings was prohibited.

H.B. 683 was not enacted.
