Resolve, Reauthorizing the Balance of the 2009 Bond Issue for Land Conservation Projects (2016)

Immediately after the failed LD 1378 override vote at the end of the 2015 session, Majority Leader McCabe amended a different bill, LD 1454, to direct the governor to release the LMF bonds. The bill passed with a majority in both chambers and was sent to the governor’s desk. At the beginning of the 2016 session, LD 1454 was reconsidered, further amended and passed unanimously in the House and Senate. LD 1454 provides $6.5 million to protect working farms, forests, and working waterfronts.
