Bill Authorizing Special Occasion Events on Preserved Farmland on Track to Become Law

On Thursday, the Assembly voted to approve the recommendations of Governor Murphy’s conditional veto of S-757, after suspending their normal rules to include the bill onto the voting session board list.

The legislation looks to expand authorization of special occasion events at commercial farms and wineries on preserved farmland. The League opposed S-757 as originally passed by the legislature because it provided inadequate limitations on special occasion events, allowing preserved farmland to be used for non-agricultural purposes, undermining the intent of the state’s successful farmland preservation program.

The Governor’s recommendations in his conditional veto help to address some of the League’s concerns, including limiting the number and scope of special occasion events and the area on the farmland where the events can be held. The recommendations also provide clarity on municipal review of event applications.

The Senate approved the Governor’s recommendations last October. The bill now heads to the Governor once again, for his signature.
