Michigan Overturns Right to Farm Act

Michigan removed the protection of the Right to Farm Act, which had prevented banning of small-scale livestock in urban and suburban areas. For more information, check out this article. 

The ruling will allow local governments to arbitrarily ban goats, chickens and beehives on any property where there are 13 homes within one eighth mile or a residence within 250 feet of the property, according to Michigan Public Radio.
