It’s time for the legislature to pass House File 4395 that provides a tax credit for farmers who have taken their crop land out of production to create buffers along ditches, streams, rivers and lakes.

The farmers have done their part protecting our drinking water, and it is a matter of fairness that this land is not be taxed as if it were productive land. This important bipartisan legislation should have been passed last year and we cannot let another year go by during this time of significant economic stress for Minnesota farm families.
