#NorthDakota #FARM LAW

In March 2015, the North Dakota state legislature passed a bill that would relax a 1932 law which barred nonfamily corporations from owning farmland or operating farms. However, citizen protested the new law – set to take effect last August – which led to a referendum North Dakotans will vote on today. If voters choose to uphold the new law, domestic corporations and limited liability companies will be able to own and operate dairy and swine farms on land that is no larger than 640 acres. The state’s farmers union is urging voters to vote against the measure. (New York Times)
