Growth Bill

April 28th, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

A bill to speed up permitting and put people to work is being held up because of demands by House leaders to cut state review of bad policies. Eric Draper of Florida Audubon says the house insistence could destroy progress made to speed up the permitting process.

“They’ve taken some otherwise good concepts and they’ve put sprawl in there,” Draper said. “They would take away the state’s ability to stop a really bad development from happening in a place where it shouldn’t happen.”

Lawmakers have until Friday to reach agreement.
