Summary as passed House:

Payments from timber sales.  Limits the payment made to localities by the Department of Forestry to one-fourth of the gross proceeds derived solely from the sale of timber harvested on state forest lands; however, the counties of Appomattox, Buckingham, and Cumberland will receive one-eighth of the gross proceeds from the timber sales on state forest lands located in their county. Currently, localities receive one-fourth of the gross proceeds from revenue generated by any revenue-generating activity occurring on state forest lands. This bill is identical to SB 428.
