The 2013 Legislature passed HB 444 establishing a program in which a private landowner who provides public access to a parcel of state land through a contractual agreement with the department can receive a $500 tax credit, with a limit of $2000 per year. The law requires the commission to adopt administrative rules that address the contracts and the duration of access, types of qualified access, and reasonable landowner-imposed restrictions. The law becomes effective Jan. 1, 2014 and terminates Dec. 31, 2018.
