Blocked HB1721 Supports the 10th AmendmentSubmitted by jabowery on Mon, 01/24/2011 - 12:49
HB1721, that would make Urban Development Areas optional rather than mandatory, is being attacked by heavy weights like the Home Builders Association, Southern Environmental Law Center, and the Sierra Club.
Republicans on the House Counties, Cities and Towns Sub-committee #2 unanimously recommended to report HB1721 on Thursday, January, 20. But on Friday, January 21, Speaker Howell and House Republicans caved to the pressure of special interest groups and the bill was set aside by the full committee.
