Yesterday HB 246 presented by Representative Gage Froerer that would give residential property owners required by zoning ordinances to have a minimum of 3 acres (in Weber County and up to 6 acres in some other counties in Utah) the same residential property exemption as most of us receive, was defeated in the House. The Standard Examiner ran an article about the defeat today.
The Standard’s article did not mention the vote on the bill. It was defeated by a vote of 33 for, 39 against and 3 absent. Last year, a similar bill did not get out of Committee.
Representative Froerer stated last evening he is going to see if he can get the bill back for reconsideration today.
February 26th, HB 246 is back in business! It has passed out of the house to the Senate.
