During 2014, Farm Bureau:
- Sponsored successful legislation to make permanent a law credited with saving the Williamson Act farmland-conservation program in several counties, by providing counties with an alternative to exiting the program.
- Sponsored a successful bill providing counties with greater incentive to implement solar-use-easement provisions of the Williamson Act, encouraging location of utility-scale solar plants on marginal land.
- Informed members of proposed power-line projects in the San Joaquin Valley that could affect farmland, and encouraged farmers to participate in discussions about potential routes.
- Helped secure $5 million in the state budget for planning grants and conservation easements to conserve California farmland.
- Supported increased penalties, ultimately adopted by the U.S. Sentencing Commission, for federal drug offenders who grow marijuana on public land or trespass on private or tribal land; continued to call attention to environmental and safety concerns caused by trespass marijuana growing on farmland.
