BILL NUMBER:S770

TITLE OF BILL:

An act
to amend the agriculture and markets law, in relation to game bird
breeding

PURPOSE:

To extend agricultural district protections to on-farm breeding of
certain game birds provided that such farm is otherwise eligible for
the agricultural assessment of farm operation.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 301 of the Agriculture and Markets Law is amended to include
game birds bred and/or raised with a DEC permitted Class A game bird
license within the definition of livestock and livestock products for
purposes of Article 25-AA Agricultural Districts Law.

EXISTING LAW:

Existing law does not provide specific protection to game bird
breeders for on-farm breeding.

JUSTIFICATION:

In this age of global competition, low prices and increasing taxes,
traditional agricultural operations continually search for ways to
add value to their farms and increase net farm income. One new method
that farmers are beginning to employ to enhance profitability is game
bird breeding. This legislation extends agricultural district
protections and benefits under Article 25-AA of the Agriculture and
Markets Law to game bird breeding operations

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2009-2010: S.2434/A.9910 Passed Senate
207-2008: S.5676-B/A.8422 Passed Senate

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Effective immediately.
