Legislative Summary

SB360 - (preemption re: takings) - An Act relating to regulatory takings - Session Adjourned

This bill amends the definition of "takings" to include "a series of actions within a 10 year period," and amends the scope of what may be considered a regulatory taking. This would allow property owners to sue local governments for adopting laws, like smokefree air laws, that they believe infringe on their private property rights, including "in a manner that restricts or limits the owner's right to the property that would otherwise exist in the absence of the governmental action."
