House of Representatives
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: August 25, 2021 03:04 PM
From: Representative Mindy Fee
To: All House members
Subject: Farmland Preservation Legislation
I will soon introduce legislation that will provide for the subdivision of small parcels of preserved farmland under limited circumstances. 
The current law requires a minimum of 10 acres for a subdivision of preserved farmland.  There are numerous circumstances where contiguous preserved farm owners wish to convey smaller parcels from one owner to the other.  My legislation will require a county farmland preservation program to provide for such small-parcel subdivisions and further, insulate the transfer from triggering roll-back tax penalties under the Clean and Green preferential tax assessment program.

Please join me in co-sponsoring this legislation.

Introduced as HB1984
