House of Representatives
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: June 6, 2018 09:22 AM
From: Representative Mindy Fee
To: All House members
Subject: Farm Succession Planning Grants
Please join me in cosponsoring legislation to permit the use of money in the Agricultural Conservation Easement Purchase Fund for grants for succession planning to ensure that agricultural operations continue on land subject to agricultural conservation easements. This will assist the next generation of farming families in their efforts to keep the farm operational.

The legislation would allow up to $165,000 in the fund each fiscal year to be used for the grants, which would not exceed $3,000 for each family. The eligibility criteria would be set by the Department of Agriculture, in consultation with the State Agricultural Land Preservation Board.

Please join me in cosponsoring this important legislation.

Introduced as HB2497
