27 Sep: Sweneey/Madden Bill To Make $45.15 Million Available For Farmland Preservation Is Now Law

TRENTON – A measure sponsored by Senators Steve Sweeney and Fred H. Madden, which appropriates over $45.2 million from the Garden State Farmland Preservation Trust Fund (GSFPT) , to be used for farmland preservation has been signed into law by Governor Jon Corzine.

“New Jersey’s farmers work hard to grow exceptional produce that is not just enjoyed here in New Jersey, but also around the world,” said Senator Sweeney, D-Gloucester, Cumberland and Salem. “This appropriation will help cover the cost of development and preservation for farmland throughout the state.”
