Assemblywoman Gunther announced Sept. 1 that a new law she sponsored will allow farm vehicles to travel up to 25 miles on public highways from the point of sale to the farm. The law is meant to help people save money by not having to find other means to transport the farm vehicles home.

“Our farmers are struggling, and the cost of transporting a tractor or other equipment by trailer from where it’s purchased back to the farm is unnecessary, burdensome, and, quite frankly, illogical,” said Gunther in a press release.

Previously, farm vehicles were only permitted to travel between portions of a farm, to a local landfill, or to a repair shop.
