Growth management bill ruled unconstitutional

Circuit Judge Charles Francis has ruled SB 360, the controversial growth management bill, unconstitutional. In his ruling, Francis said the bill violates a constituional provision on unfunded mandates.

Jamie Cole, a lawyer who argued against the bill, said it would force 264 cities to amend their comprehensive master plans, at a minimum cost of $15,000 per city. In total, that's about $3.6 million, or twice the limit of a cost deemed an "unfunded mandate."

More soon.
