House of Representatives
Session of 2015 - 2016 Regular Session


Posted: January 22, 2015 11:29 AM
From: Representative W. Curtis Thomas
To: All House members
Subject: Condemnation Approval
In the near future, I plan to re-introduce legislation which would protect farm land by eliminating exemptions in the condemnation process.

This bill seeks to protect Act 43 farmland from condemnation by PUC- and FERC- approval projects in first, second and third class counties. Act 43 currently exempts such projects from requiring the approval of the Agricultural Lands Condemnation Approval Board. This bill would delete this exemption. This added protection is needed not only because of gas pipeline projects, but also the National Electric Corridor project.

Please join me in sponsoring this legislation.

(Formerly HB2521 of 2013-14 Legislative Session)

Introduced as HB633
