Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

     38-22-23.12.   Investigation of suspected land--Notice required for entry. If a county weed and pest board has probable cause to believe there is land upon which exist weeds or pests that may spread or contribute to the injury or detriment of others, it shall investigate the suspected premises. The designated representative of the board, after giving the landowner written notice, may go upon the premises without interference or obstruction for purposes of making a reasonable investigation of the infested area. Such notice is considered given if it is given to the landowner or operator personally at least one day before entry or if it is mailed, by certified mail, addressed to the last known address of the landowner at least five days before entry. A board may serve notice of intent to inspect on all landowners by publishing a legal notice of such intent at least thirty days before entry in the county's official newspaper.
