Ginal Bill Preserving Ag Land Advances
(March 24) – A bill by Rep. Joann Ginal, D-Fort Collins, to preserve agricultural land and reduce workloads for county assessors passed the House on second reading this morning. HB16-1339 allows agricultural land that includes residential property to be assessed as agricultural.
“What we want is a working farm to remain a working farm,” said Rep. Ginal. “This bill prevents ag land from being split up during the foreclosure process just because there is an independent residence on the land.”
The bill continues to a third reading by the House.
