HR 51: Forest land fair market value; prescribed methodology; remove – CA

Voted on Wednesday March 1, 2017

John Pezold's thoughts

This resolution amends the state Constitution relating to forest land conservation use property and strikes the base year of 2008 for determining the fair market value of forest land conservation use property and allowing a fee of up to five percent to be deducted from assistance grants provided to counties to be retained by the state to cover the costs of administering the "Forest Land Protection Act." The bill also allows the General Assembly to create a separate class of property for ad valorem taxation purposes known as "timberland property" and provides ballot language for these amendments.
