                               ___________

Introduced   by  Sens.  RITCHIE,  FARLEY,  GALLIVAN,  GRISANTI,  LARKIN,
  LAVALLE, LIBOUS, LITTLE, MARCHIONE, MARTINS, MAZIARZ, O'MARA,  RANZEN-
  HOFER,  SEWARD,  VALESKY, YOUNG -- read twice and ordered printed, and

AN ACT to amend the agriculture and markets law, the tax law, the  vehi-
  cle  and  traffic  law  and  the  environmental  conservation  law, in
  relation to reducing farm-based taxes, fees and regulatory burdens  to
  help grow the agricultural economy and benefit family farms

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. This act shall be known and may be cited as  the  "let  New
York farm act."
  S  2.  Legislative intent. The legislature finds that viable farms and
the protection of working farmland are of paramount  importance  to  the
economic  and environmental wellbeing of New York state. The locally-fo-
cused, diverse food supply New York farms provide is of critical  impor-
tance to the health and welfare of all New York citizens.  With agricul-
ture  facing  ever  increasing  global  competition,  New  York state is
committed to helping grow and expand our farms. In  aid  of  this  goal,
reducing  farm-based  taxes,  fees  and  regulatory  burdens that do not
recognize the unique nature and benefits of agriculture is an  important
step in achieving successful, sustainable family farms.
  S 3. Subdivision 3 of section 303-b of the agriculture and markets law
is amended by adding a new paragraph c to read as follows:
  C. THE NOTICE SHALL ALSO BE PROVIDED TO ALL LANDOWNERS WITH LAND BEING
PROPOSED  FOR  INCLUSION  IN  AN AGRICULTURAL DISTRICT. LANDOWNERS SHALL
HAVE THE OPTION TO RECEIVE THIS NOTICE EITHER THROUGH  WRITTEN  COMMUNI-
CATION OR THROUGH ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION.
  S 4. Subdivision 12 of section 210 of the tax law is amended by adding
a new paragraph (e-1) to read as follows:

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD04918-02-3
