The purpose of this bill, in plain English, would appear to be to allow somebody to take their deer, hog, steer, etc. to have it butchered, and not have to pay sales tax. Now, I've never heard of having sales tax charged on that, and the folks I know in this line of business have surely never paid sales tax on it, so realistically, I expect this is just codifying the existing practice. After all, it's really more of a service than a product.
