Discounts For Co-Ownership Of Real Estate, Neil E. Harl 2017 Iowa State University

Discounts For Co-Ownership Of Real Estate, Neil E. Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

Today, discounts for co-ownership of interests in real estate are available generally and that has been the case since the late 1980s.1 Earlier cases involving undivided interests in tenancy in common were not eligible for a discount.2 The Youle case with a 12 ½ percent discount, the first case to allow a discount, was soon followed by discounts of up to 20 percent and, more recently, much larger discounts. For example, the case of Estate of Williams v. Commissioner,3 The discount allowed in that Tax Court decision for a gift of undivided interests in Florida timberland for ...

Opening The Gates Of Cow Palace: Regulating Runoff Manure As A Hazardous Waste Under Rcra, Reed J. McCalib 2017 University of Michigan Law School

Opening The Gates Of Cow Palace: Regulating Runoff Manure As A Hazardous Waste Under Rcra, Reed J. Mccalib

Michigan Law Review

In 2015, a federal court held for the first time that the Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) may regulate runoff manure as a “solid waste” under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (“RCRA”). The holding of Community Ass’n for Restoration of the Environment, Inc. v. Cow Palace, LLC opened the gates to regulation of farms under the nation’s primary toxic waste statute. This Comment argues that, once classified as a “solid waste,” runoff manure fits RCRA’s definition of “hazardous waste” as well. This reclassification would expand EPA’s authority to monitor and respond to the nation’s tragically ...

Unwarranted Downgrading Of “Partnerships And Partners”, Neil E. Harl 2017 Iowa State University

Unwarranted Downgrading Of “Partnerships And Partners”, Neil E. Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

The concepts of partners and partnerships have been firmly established in history from ancient times through the twentieth century but the harsh treatment by the United States Government over the past three or so decades has cast a dark shadow over the time-honored contributions that had become solidly anchored in history.1 From ancient times, the partnership has been viewed as a conduit-type entity that has provided flexible and effective service in the developing world.2

Atay V. County Of Maui, Stephanie A. George 2017 Alexander Blewett III School of Law at the University of Montana

Atay V. County Of Maui, Stephanie A. George

Public Land and Resources Law Review

As genetically engineered plants become more common, questions frequently arise regarding how the plants are regulated and who can regulate them. The Ninth Circuit attempted to answer these questions through preemption doctrine. The court left the door open for states and localities to regulate genetically engineered crops that have been deregulated by the federal government. This decision will implicate the future cultivation of genetically engineered crops, and the food industry as a whole.


Impacts Of The Food Safety Modernization Act On On-Farm Food Safety Practices For Small And Sustainable Produce Growers, Aaron Adalja, Erik Lichtenberg 2017 Cornell University School of Hotel Administration

Impacts Of The Food Safety Modernization Act On On-Farm Food Safety Practices For Small And Sustainable Produce Growers, Aaron Adalja, Erik Lichtenberg

Aaron Adalja

We use data from a national survey of fruit and vegetable growers to examine the current prevalence and cost burden of food safety practices required in the proposed Produce Rule implementing the Food Safety Modernization Act. In particular, we analyze the influence of farm size and farming practices on the probability of adopting food safety measures that would be required by the Produce Rule; and we analyze how the costs of using those food safety practices vary by farm size and farm practices. Majorities of our respondents currently employ most of the food safety practices that would be required under ...


Adoption And Coexistence Of Ge, Conventional Non-Ge, And Organic Crops, Aaron Adalja, Catherine Greene, James Hanson, Robert Ebel, Michael Barron 2017 Cornell University School of Hotel Administration

Adoption And Coexistence Of Ge, Conventional Non-Ge, And Organic Crops, Aaron Adalja, Catherine Greene, James Hanson, Robert Ebel, Michael Barron

Aaron Adalja

The adoption of genetically engineered (GE) crop varieties by U.S. farmers is widespread for major crops—94 percent of planted acres for soybeans, and 88 percent for corn in 2012 (USDA-NASS 2012). The potential exists for GE crop production to impose costs on organic and conventional non-GE production via unintended presence of GE material along the supply chain through: • Contamination of seed stock • Accidental cross-pollination • Accidental co-mingling during planting, harvesting, handling, and storing of crops (Bullock and Desquilbet 2002). Maintaining the integrity of GE-differentiated product markets relies on segregation protocols such as: • Hybrid selection and seed purity testing • Physical ...


The Two-Entity Business Model, Neil E. Harl 2017 Iowa State University

The Two-Entity Business Model, Neil E. Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

Without much doubt, one of the most difficult issues in farm estate and business planning, after the parents are either deceased or inactive, is leaving as direct heirs some of which are anticipating carrying on the farming (or ranching) operation and some of which are interested in obtaining a fair shake in terms of land ownership only.

Batteries Included: Incentivizing Energy Storage, Lindsay Breslau, Michael Croweak, Alan Witt

Sustainable Development Law & Policy

Distributed Energy Storage (“DES”) technologies that allow households and businesses to store substantial amounts of electricity on site are rapidly advancing and could soon have dramatic impacts on the nation’s electricity generation, transmission, and distribution markets. These technologies could provide numerous benefits, including enhanced energy security, grid stability, and greater support for renewable generation technologies, but several obstacles are slowing their adoption throughout the country. Among these obstacles are stubbornly high manufacturing costs and the potential impacts of DES development on utilities and the traditional energy regulatory framework. Fortunately, policymakers in California, New York, Hawaii, and some other states ...

Green Is Good: How Green Bonds Cultivated Into Wall Street’S Environmental Paradox, Luke Trompeter 2017 American University Washington College of Law

Green Is Good: How Green Bonds Cultivated Into Wall Street’S Environmental Paradox, Luke Trompeter

Sustainable Development Law & Policy

When the European Investment Bank issued the first green bond in 2007, few imagined this debt instrument would attract mainstream investors. Designed to finance projects ranging from climate change prevention to clean transportation development, green bonds were geared for socially responsible investors concerned with our planet’s sustainability. However, by 2015, green bonds were issued by major corporations like Apple and municipalities like New York City at a record $40 billion. Major players on Wall Street have taken notice and look to cash in on the rapidly growing green bond market. With this new influx of investment and the bonds ...
