Department of Community Affairs is Threatened

Today in the Miami Herald it was reported by Craig Pittman that Governor Rick Scott wants to curtail the State Growth Management agency, merging it with the Department of Environmental Protection, reducing its budget and eliminating much of their staff.

The UEL has long supported the Department of Community of Affairs and would be against any of these moves that negatively effect growth management in the State. The UEL wrote a white paper on the DCA years ago, stating that regulation should be even stricter in some areas as there is little means for enforcement in the department.
