  • The 1979 Session of General Assembly enacted farm operations from nuisance suits under certain circumstances. Representative Tom Ellis, Jr.(D-Vance) was the principal introducer of the law, along with thirty-five co-sponsors. The law, enacted by unanimous votes in both the House and Senate, is of interest to local government officials and planners because of its implications for urban-rural conflicts in land use, suburban growth patterns, and annexation of farm land by municipalities.
