          to the Committee on Local Governments

        AN ACT to provide that interests or rights acquired in real property for
          the preservation of agricultural lands in the county of Suffolk  shall
          permit the use of such real property for a farm operation
 
          The  People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
 
     1    Section 1. Notwithstanding any provision of law to  the  contrary,  in
     2  the county of Suffolk, all interests or rights acquired in real property
     3  for  the  preservation of agricultural lands, pursuant to section 247 of
     4  the general municipal law, shall permit the use of such  property  as  a
     5  farm  operation.  For the purposes of this act, a "farm operation" shall
     6  have the same meaning as provided for in section 301 of the  agriculture
     7  and markets law.
     8    §  2.  Nothing in this act shall preclude the enactment of a local law
     9  to administer the interests or rights acquired in real property for  the
    10  preservation  of  agricultural  lands,  pursuant  to  section 247 of the
    11  general municipal law. Such local law may include but is not limited  to
    12  requiring  a  permit for new uses, buildings and structures on such real
    13  property, consistent with the definition of a farm operation. The grant-
    14  ing of a permit for uses, buildings, and structures  consistent  with  a
    15  farm operation shall not constitute alienation of any interest or rights
    16  in  real  property  acquired for the preservation of agricultural lands,
    17  pursuant to section 247 of the general municipal  law.  Such  local  law
    18  shall be subject to the provisions of section 308 of the agriculture and
    19  markets law protecting the right to farm.
 
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                                   LBD11509-01-7

        S. 6039                             2                            A. 7703
 
     1    §  3. This act shall apply to all interests or rights acquired in real
     2  property in the county of Suffolk for the preservation  of  agricultural
     3  lands,  pursuant  to section 247 of the general municipal law, now-owned
     4  or hereafter acquired.
     5    § 4. This act shall take effect immediately.
