Report Card

Senator Al Mansell yesterday described the original incarnation of SB 170 as a report card for local government.

Rebecca Walsh in today’s Tribune:
Think of the legislation as a “report card” prepared by developers, Mansell said.

“We have cities that are quite notorious for violating the land-use restrictions in the law,” he said Tuesday. “I decided to put this out there and let the cities see how unhappy their customers are with them.”
Senator Mansell will revise SB 170 - or put out a different bill - to address the responsibility of local governments to follow their own ordinances and spend impact fees appropriately.
