GMA unfunded mandate still in Senate Rules

SB 6420 extends an unfunded GMA mandate that currently applies only in the six most populous counties to all GMA planning cities. The bill, requiring an extensive and proscriptive land capacity analysis, is currently stranded in Senate Rules. In order to stay alive it would need to move from the Rules committee and pass out of the Senate by Wednesday, February 17. It’s not clear if the bill will move, but those of you who are concerned about being burdened with even more unfunded responsibilities would be well served to drop a quick note to your Senators.
