Last week we covered how Missoula City Councilwoman Lyn Hellegaard had worked with Rep. Gordon Hendrick, R-Superior, to severely narrow how special tax districts can be created, and what they can be used for.
It didn't work. On Tuesday, the House Local Government Committee voted to table House Bill 304.
Local government policy wonks may also be interested to know that a proposal to make it more difficult for counties to implement interim zoning is headed to the House floor. House Bill 366, sponsored by Rep. Matthew Rosendale, R-Glendive, passed the House Local Government Committee on Tuesday by a vote of 13-7.
