PLF holds webchat on Florida proposal to tighten land-use controls
Author: Paul J. Beard II
Today, PLF moderated a Web chat on Amendment 4, which will appear on next month's ballot in Florida. If passed, Amendment 4 would modify the Florida Constitution to require a popular vote, by referendum, before a local government could adopt a new comprehensive land use plan or amend an existing one. ?
Ryan Houck, Executive Director of Citizens for Lower Taxes and a Stronger Economy, and a prominent opponent of Amendment 4, took questions from Floridians about the likely effects of the law on the economy and property rights. Unfortunately, the amendment's sponsors refused to participate in this informative discussion, after repeated requests by PLF.
An active participant on today's Web chat was The Florida Independent's Travis Pillow, who cited PLF's chat and some of Mr. Houck's insights in a story about Amendment 4.
