Affordable housing bill was hijacked (Guest opinion)

It started as a way to achieve more affordable housing, but was amended to kill historic districts, allow development without enough public process and encourage demolitions.

Sometimes in the legislative process, a good idea in a good bill gets hijacked. That’s what happened to House Bill 2007. It started off as a way to get more affordable housing. It got amended and hijacked to kill off historic districts, to allow development without enough public process and to encourage demolitions.

We oppose HB 2007 in its current A-amended form.
