§ 564. Surface use value appraisal of agriculture and forest lands

In order to support and encourage the accomplishment of the purposes set forth in 32 V.S.A. § 3751, the eligibility of agricultural land and managed forest land for use value appraisal shall not be denied solely by the leasing or development of the subsurface of those lands for oil and gas exploration and production. However, those lands shall nevertheless be required to meet the criteria contained in chapter 124 of Title 32 and the rules adopted by the current use advisory board. (Added 1981, No. 240 (Adj. Sess.), § 2, eff. April 28, 1982.)
