Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This  legislation allows local governments to hold public hearings by teleconference when necessitated by emergency conditions, which ACCG supports.  Separately, it broadens the definition of an "applicant"
 applying for a zoning action who must disclose having made a contribution of more than $250 to a member of he governing authority deciding on the zoning application.  ACCG is neutral on this provision.
