Ag land

Massey sponsored House Bill 1146 with Sen. Pat Steadman in the 2011 session. It was given final approval in late April 2011 in the House and headed to Governor John Hickenlooper for consideration. The measure says that up to two acres of ag property that a home sits on can be taxed at a higher residential rate—if the home’s not “integral” to agricultural production.[5]
