    MONTPELIER — A special Senate panel will be hosting a public hearing on changes to a bill under consideration that addresses Vermont’s Current Use tax program.

    The Senate group toured the state last fall to gather comments on Vermont’s Current Use program and a House bill, H.329, that would modify the program. Based on that tour, the special committee is proposing amendments to the House bill.

    The Current Use program allows the taxation of farm and forest land based on its remaining in agricultural or forest use or in conservation instead of its value in the marketplace.

    The committee will hold a hearing on the proposed changes Jan. 28 from 6 to 8 p.m. in Room 11 of the State House.

    The public is invited to participate in person or to submit written comments to the committee.

    To mail comments to the committee, send them to Rebecca Ramos, c/o Senate President Pro Tem Office, 115 State St., Montpelier, VT 05633-5201, or email comments to rramos@leg.state.vt.us.

    Copies of the proposed Senate changes can be obtained online at http://www.leg.state.vt.us.
