What do you mean, “so what?” This sort of practice drives up the cost of farmland, namely because any Joe Schmoe can incur upon the land, build as they please, and permanently destroy what had been perfectly good farmland. It frankly infuriates me that developers are getting tax breaks on this sort of land.
As someone who actually wants to get into ranching and looks as the price of land around the nation inflates because of wreckless builders and irresponsible immigration policities, it’s frustrating.
And if you want to own land somewhat near a residential area because your spouse works, oh, that’s right, you can’t because some moronic developer has bought up the land.
So you believe that some people (ie those "who actually want to get into ranching") should get tax breaks, but not other people, eg. developers? And this is a so-called conservative forum.
