The New York Farm Bureau, representing the interests of all farmers, has presented its 2014 legislative priorities.

Some proposals already appear in the governor’s budget such as: raising the estate tax threshold to match the federal level and phasing out the article on surcharge electric bills.

Other proposals include: a refundable investment tax credit, extending the START UP NY program to farms to encourage entrepreneurs and young people to go into agriculture and a farm-to-market transportation program.

An additional proposal would require state agencies to buy 20 percent of their food from New York producers and processors.
