February 14th – 2013 Regular Legislative Session Day 32

We’re hearing three bills in the Local Government Committee this morning. House Bill 1606 requires residential buildings to be equipped with carbon monoxide alarms by January 1, 2015.

House Bill 1652 obligates counties, cities, and towns to adopt deferral systems for the collection of impact fees from applicants for residential building permits through a covenant-based process, or through a process that delays payment until final inspection, certificate of occupancy, or equivalent certification; authorizes counties, cities, and towns to adopt alternative impact fee collection deferral systems if certain requirements are met; and delays the starting of the six-year timeframe for satisfying concurrency provisions of the Growth Management Act until after the county or city receives full payment of all deferred impact fees.

House Bill 1654 authorizes regional fire protection service authorities (RFAs) to be formed within a single city rather than only within an area that is coextensive with two or more fire protection jurisdictions and exempts single-city RFAs from provisions generally barring an RFA from establishing an ambulance service that would compete with an existing private ambulance service.
