Policy and Advocacy

In the Law Update area, Brian Ohm provides monthly summaries of recent cases that affect planning practice.  In addition, when legislative or administrative provisions change in significant ways, summaries of those changes are posted here as well.

The Vice President for Chapter Affairs, Drew Pennington, monitors bills working their way through the state legislature and coordinates the work of the Legislative Committee.  Important alerts are emailed to members and archived in the Policy Advocacy section.

The Legislative Committee or other groups designated by the board may proactively develop Policy Proposals from time to time.  These are highlighted in the section on Policy Proposals.

Thank you to one of our generous sponsors, Teska and Vierbicher.
