House of Representatives
Session of 2023 - 2024 Regular Session


Posted: July 13, 2023 10:34 AM
From: Representative Barbara Gleim
To: All House members
Subject: MS4 Farm Exemption Legislation Package
As storm water management becomes a pressing issue across the state with more and more municipalities being required to enter into the MS4 and comply with DEP regulations, I believe that our agricultural businesses need to be recognized for their efforts in helping control water on their properties.

Therefore, I am proposing a package of bills that amend the Second Class Township Code and the Municipal Authorities Act to ensure that farmers that install approved best management practices receive credit against any storm water management fee imposed on them.

This legislation will help farmers across the state, by ensuring that they get the recognition for the storm water management actions they have already taken if a municipality has to impose a storm water management fee.

Please join me in sponsoring this important legislation.
