Montgomery County right to farm legislation to be considered on 2/16

Via the Montgomery Countryside Alliance: the MoCo delegation Land Use and Transportation Subcommittee has once again placed important right to farm legislation on its agenda for its meeting this Thursday 2/16. This bill would nullify restrictive covenants that prohibit farming on certain parcels in the ag reserve (see our post of 2/1/2012).
Contact the legislators listed in the 2/1/2012 post and tell them to VOTE FOR MC 16-12 (HB 722). Tell them also to VOTE AGAINST the Barkley amendment that would allow already existing restrictive covenants to remain in place. Phone calls are most effective, but emails are great, too. Contact info is in the 2/1/2012 post.
