    Bill Summary

    Under present law, a municipality, when petitioned by interested persons, or upon its own initiative, by resolution, may propose extension of its corporate limits by the annexation of territory adjoining its existing boundaries. However, no such resolution may propose annexation of any property being used primarily for agricultural purposes.

    For purposes of the above-described present law provision, this bill defines "property being used primarily for agricultural purposes" as property that satisfies one of the following conditions:

    (1) The property is classified as agricultural land or forest land pursuant to state tax laws;
    (2) The property fails to meet the size requirements of agricultural land or forest land specified in state tax laws, but otherwise meets the requirements to be classified as agricultural land or forest land;
    (3) The person who owns or operates the property meets the definition of a qualified farmer or nurseryman or is eligible to file a farm tax return; or
    (4) The property meets the definition of agriculture under present law.

    Under present law, "agriculture" means:

    (1) The land, buildings, and machinery used in the commercial production of farm products and nursery stock;
    (2) The activity carried on in connection with the commercial production of farm products and nursery stock;
    (3) Recreational and educational activities on land used for the commercial production of farm products and nursery stock; and
    (4) Entertainment activities conducted in conjunction with, but secondary to, commercial production of farm products and nursery stock, when such activities occur on land used for the commercial production of farm products and nursery stock.
