This week marks the halfway point for the regularly scheduled 2021 Legislative Session.

The House and Senate released their individual budgets late last week, keeping on track for passage in each chamber in Week 6, with the budget conference starting immediately thereafter. The budgets released did not contemplate the $9 billion in federal funding coming to the state in the coming months. There will still be a lot to discuss on that front.

FRA is currently monitoring several bills as they relate to key areas of redevelopment practice. Such areas include affordable housing, building design and impact fees.

We will keep you updated on these proposed changes as we move throughout the session.
