Local Ordinances - HB 403
Yesterday afternoon, HB 403 (Giallombardo) passed the House Local Administration & Veterans Affairs Subcommittee by a vote of 11-4. HB 403 would amend the legal standards and process for assessing the validity of municipal ordinances and imposes new substantive requirements on municipalities for adopting and enforcing ordinances. The bill is a substantial unfunded mandate.
