The bill tries to ensure that funds for the existing Green Acres and Farmland Preservation programs are not shifted over to the Highlands region as a result of the increased priority given to preservation in that part of the state. More specifically: from 2005 to 2009, the amount of money from these two preservation programs spent in each county cannot be less than the average annual amount spent from 2002 to 2004, unless there are no more lands or easements for the state to buy in a given county.
