Section 1. Allowed commercial and industrial operations. Allows cell phone towers to be installed on property within an agricultural preserve located in greater Minnesota (only Waseca, Winona and Wright counties participate in the program). Effective upon final enactment.

Section 2. Early termination. Allows for early termination from the metropolitan agricultural preserve program upon the death of an owner of the property. If enrollment is terminated, the property is subject to additional taxes in an amount equal to 50 percent of the taxes actually levied against the property for the current taxes payable year.

Effective July 1, 2015.

Section 3. Allowed commercial and industrial operations. Allows cell phone towers to be installed on property within a metropolitan agricultural preserve. Effective upon final enactment.

Effective beginning with taxes payable in 2016.
