LEGISLATURE

Legislature not currently in session

 

1. In special session in 2015 the legislature reached a compromise setting rooted-vegetation buffers of 30 feet in width. There is supposed to be a buffer average of 50 feet along public waterways. Along drainage ditches, 16.5 feet is required.  Farmers have a deadline of 2017 for public waterways. Ditches have to be compliant by 2018.
