    Appraisal Institute Among Organizations Supporting Senate Conservation Easement Hearing

    The Appraisal Institute on April 26 joined the American Society of Appraisers, the American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers and multiple conservation organizations in supporting a request from Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., for the Senate Finance Committee to hold a hearing on easement-related issues.

    Daines made the appeal at a Finance Committee hearing in support of the Charitable Conservation Easement Program Integrity Act, legislation that he and Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., have introduced to curb abuses in syndicated conservation easement arrangements. The Senate Finance Committee has not yet scheduled a hearing on easement issues, but may do so in the coming months.
