Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 1094 - Under current law, as an alternative to abandoning a railroad easement, an out-of-service rail corridor may be used as a trail until the railroad needs the corridor for rail service. Under this act, any portion of a landowner's parcel of land on which a trail is operated in this manner is exempt from property taxation.
