Representative Steve Daines Passes Bill That Looks to Protect Landowners, Conserve Habitat
Representative Steve Daines joined the House of Representatives Thursday to pass a stack of bills that hope to encourage charitable giving, including one co-sponsored by Daines. The Conservation Easement Incentive Act looks to make the tax deduction for charitable contributions permanent for individuals who have real property interests for conservation purposes.
Daines said the America Gives More Act gives landowners the assurances they need to make long term estate planning decisions.
Daines says the easements allow private landowners to partner with conservation organizations to preserve millions of acres of valued lands nationwide.
