Texas Proposition 1, the Right to Farming, Ranching, Timber Production, Horticulture, and Wildlife Management Amendment is a legislatively referred constitutional amendment that will be on the ballot in Texas on November 7, 2023. 1. The amendment seeks to establish a right to farming, ranching, timber production, horticulture, and wildlife management on owned or leased personal property.
The Texas law can be seen as serving two different purposes: (1) providing a defense for agricultural operations facing nuisance or other similar lawsuits; and (2) prohibiting cities or political subdivisions from imposing certain regulations or requirements on agricultural operations.
We believe that a yes vote on this proposition is imperative in keeping our farms in Texas working for its community.
