The Senate Business & Commerce Committee is planning to add loopholes to HB7 that are designed to benefit developers of large tracks of land, not people living single family homes. The committee meets tomorrow Tuesday August 8th at 9:00 AM. The proposed amendments strip cities of local control & could lead to clear cutting damaging neighborhoods and property values.
We have setup a special HB7 page with links to committee members and information on how you can help.
The senate never even held a committee hearing on the companion bill to HB7. Now they are attempting to turn HB7 into a version of SB14 which the House has been wise enough to leave in committee while continuing to work on the state’s pressing issues.
