Ohio Farm Bureau is asking its members once again to call their member of the Ohio Senate and ask him or her to support CAUV language in the state budget.
Monday, the Senate leadership team announced its proposed changes to the state budget and have kept language that will help bring relief to farmers who have faced uncertainty from increasing CAUV valuation. In addition, the Senate language takes effect as counties are re-evaluated so that all reforms will be complete within three years. There are organizations working in opposition to CAUV reform; therefore, it is essential for legislators to know members support this measure.
The Senate passed SB 36 in May, a separate CAUV bill that was voted on by the Senate. This is not to be confused with the current state budget bill, HB 49, that also contains CAUV reform. Ohio Farm Bureau is asking members to call their senators by June 20 and ask them to support CAUV reform in this latest version of the state budget bill (HB 49). Farm Bureau is supportive of all pathways forward, so it is important for members to show that support to their legislators.
“Ohio Farm Bureau has been working with the House and Senate members to accomplish CAUV reform, but now it is up to our members to help protect and keep CAUV language in the budget by making sure statewide support is voiced. Senate members need to hear from farmers and property owners regarding their support of this CAUV language and will need to hear from you before the budget is voted out of the Senate,” according to Yvonne Lesicko, Ohio Farm Bureau vice president, public policy.
