This summer, Connecticut ended its legislative session with some big wins for farmland preservation, thanks to WLA’s education and advocacy efforts. A bill to preserve 825 acres of state owned farmland passed unanimously in both the House and Senate, and was signed by CT Governor Dannel Malloy. WLA also successfully defended the Community Investment Act (CIA) from a proposed $4 million raid and, in fact, the budget actually included a significant new source of revenue to the CIA account. Finally, WLA secured another $20 million in new bond authorization for the state’s Farmland Preservation Program for the next two fiscal years. Overall, the session was a success!
