House of Representatives
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: January 25, 2019 03:47 PM
From: Representative Curtis G. Sonney
To: All House members
Subject: Allow Wind Energy on Farmland Preservation
My legislation amends the Agricultural Area Security Law to provide a preserved farmland owner with 50+ acres the access to grant a right-of-way to install a wind power generation system.

Under the current easement program, these landowners who are enrolled in land preservation may grant the use of right-of-ways for the installation of, transportation of, or use of water, sewage, electric, telephone, coal or non-coal minerals by underground mining methods, gas, oil and/or oil products lines.

My legislation will add wind power generation to that list, within certain parameters to protect the integrity of the preserved farmland.
