In June, PLF won Koontz v.

Yet a Florida county is doing just that – demanding permit applicants give up land in exchange for permits.  Learn more by reading a Tampa Tribune op-ed that I co-authored with Daniel Himebaugh.  You can also read PLF’s amicus brief in the case, Pasco County v. Hillcrest Property, LLP.
