General Assembly

Land Conservation Legislation

Find out more about the 2016 Virginia General Assembly legislation that PEC is tracking related to Land Conservation.

The Virginia Land Preservation Tax Credit (LPTC) is the single most effective tool Virginia has to protect farm and forest land, clean air and water, historic and scenic landscapes, and important natural communities and ecosystems. The LPTC provides the Commonwealth and landowners with the right mix of market based incentives, voluntary action, and governmental oversight to create the most effective voluntary land conservation program in the United States.

This is shaping up to be an exciting session, full of opportunity for forward progress on conservation. The Governor’s proposed budget, which will go before both the House and Senate, includes additional funding for several conservation initiatives.
