Pence signs law putting farmland taxes up for review

A Jackson County man was among about two dozen Hoosier farmers and lawmakers gathered to witness Gov. Mike Pence sign his first law into effect last week.

Hamilton Township farmer Brian Thompson joined Pence and others at the Statehouse to witness the ceremonial signing of Senate Enrolled Act 319, which delays the use of new calculations to determine property tax rates on farmland.

Thompson and his wife, Carla, live west of Cortland. He farms ground in Brownstown, Hamilton and Jackson townships.
