Community Redevelopment Agencies (CRAs)
Oppose HB 17!
HB 17 would increase audit, ethics, reporting and accountability measures for community redevelopment agencies. This is essentially the same legislation that passed the House of Representatives last legislative session.
Of specific concern to cities, HB 17 outlines a process by which CRAs can be phased out, unless reauthorized by a super majority vote of the body that created the CRA. Additionally, HB 17 prohibits the creation of a new CRA unless authorized by a special act of the Legislature.
Please contact members of the House Government Accountability Committee and urge them to Oppose HB 17!
