Moments ago, the Minnesota House of Representatives voted 90-41 to send House File 330 to the Governor. This bill is a long-time BATC priority and is a pillar of the Minnesota Homeownership Initiative.
The bill provides common-sense transparency measures to ensure that landowners are afforded basic public notice of a housing moratorium prior to its enforcement. Given the consequential nature of a housing moratorium, the bill aligns it with the 2/3 voting standard currently required for major land use decisions.
HF 330 passed with bi-partisan support in both the House (90-41) and Senate (38-29) and will now head to the Governor.
Thank you to the bill’s authors, Representative Jim Nash (R-Waconia) and Senator Dan Hall (R-Burnsville). To all who contacted their legislator in support of this initiative – THANK YOU!
