More land off the tax roles at over valued prices and less local economic activity. Somewhat surprised Hogan voted for this and a Democrat voted against. This is about 8,000 acres bought since Hogan in office and some 100,000 plus acres since the 1996 Chesapeake sale no surprise we have lost 70% of our pre 1996 saw mill cutting capacity and the corresponding jobs and local money multiplier. What a total waste of tax payers money.
