February 21st – 2013 Regular Legislative Session Day 39

We’re hearing two bills in the Local Government Committee this morning. House Bill 1754 provides legislative declarations for projects of statewide significance are amended to specify that the Legislature declares that certain private investments, rather than investments, including investments for transportation, merit special designation as projects of statewide significance. The expressly stated intention of the Legislature is to recognize projects of statewide significance, to provide a mechanism for local governments and state and federal agencies to perform a coordinated and comprehensive review of these projects, and to encourage their expeditious completion.

House Bill 1848 authorizes counties that fully plan under the Growth Management Act to permit schools outside of designated urban growth areas (UGAs) when specified criteria are met; and establishes planning actions that counties must satisfy in complying with the requirement to permit schools outside of UGAs.

We also have 21 bills on the calendar for possible Executive Action.
