[ARCHIVED] League Testifies, Expresses Concerns on S-3688

On Thursday, the Senate Community and Urban Affairs Committee discussed a committee substitute for S-3688 that requires municipalities to take into account the potential effects of approving the construction and operation of retail warehouses on neighboring municipalities. The sponsor acknowledged that this was a work in progress and the beginning of a conversation. While the legislation was not released by the committee, Senate President Steve Sweeney assigned it to the Senate Budget Committee.

Mike Cerra, League Executive Director, testified and raised concerns regarding home rule issues, municipal responsibilities, constitutionality, and application timelines. While the League has not taken a position on the legislation, we advised the sponsor and members of the committee that the League is reviewing the new language and would provide comments and analysis shortly.
