Debate and discussion goes on for what should get done for the Ag Land Tax.
State lawmakers met with Pennington County representatives Wednesday morning in Rapid City for a brainstorming session on the future of the land tax.
County Commissioners voted Tuesday to return to the 40 acreage limit to qualify for the Agricultural Tax Status.
The county ag committee and lawmakers are meeting publicly to come up with legislation that is more balanced to small and large acreage producers
"We're hoping that we're going to go forth and have the income requirement down to a level that people can meet it and that you have to use the land as agriculture. You can't let it sit idle," said committee member Brenda Whiting.
The committee will meet again next Wednesday at 9:00 a.m. at the Central States Fairgrounds.
