Protecting Farm Land

February 17, 1998

Nonconforming Uses of Agricultural Land passes in Congress.

The existence of this law means that a county or municipality may not use its planning or zoning process to interfere with existing agricultural operations.

This bill protects farmers faced with development creeping in around them, where the new neighbors were offended by agricultural operations, such as farm machinery on the roads or the normal odor of livestock production.
