Organic Material Products (Monitor) – Failed

SB 1472 (Bradley) and CS/HB 1361 (Truenow) amend the Florida Right to Farm Act. The definition of “farm” is amended to include the production of organic material, and the definition of “farm operation” is amended to include the collection, storage, processing and distribution of organic material products. Organic material is defined as vegetative matter resulting from landscaping maintenance or land clearing operations, including clean wood and materials such as tree and shrub trimmings, grass clippings, palm fronds, trees and tree stumps and associated rocks and solids.
