The Mazhilis has started working on a draft law on the use of pastures

The Mazhilis has adopted the draft law “On amendments and additions to some legislative acts of the Republic of Kazakhstan on the use of pastures”, the correspondent of MIA Kazinform reported.

“The draft Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan “On amendments and additions to some legislative acts of the Republic of Kazakhstan on the use of pastures” was developed by deputies of the Parliament. The draft law provides for amendments and additions to the Land and Forest Codes, the Laws “On Local Government and Self-Government in the Republic of Kazakhstan” and “On Pastures”. The purpose of the bill is to improve the current legislation in the field of pasture management and use,” Mazhilisman Berik Ospanov said, presenting the document at the plenary session of the chamber.

In particular, the draft law tightens measures for non-use of pastures, establishes a ban on the transfer of pastures intended to meet the needs of the population to other types of farmland, changes the content and duration of the Plan for the Management and Use of pastures, clarifies the competence of authorized bodies, provides norms for state support of pasture users by subsidizing the costs of irrigation of pastures and carrying out radical and superficial improvement of pastures.
