Vt. Land Trust changes view on bill

Posted: Updated:

COLCHESTER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Land Trust has withdrawn its support from a bill that would allow conservation easements to be altered or lifted after a legal review.

Opponents of the bill had said legal avenues already exist to amend easements.

Vermont Public Radio reports Gil Livingston, president of the Vermont Land Trust, said the current bill is too broad, so the organization is working on changes that would greatly reduce its scope.
