Explanation

The amendment strikes the underlying bill and its associated impact.

The amendment expands the types of housing that allow a municipality to qualify for a moratorium from the affordable housing land use procedure.

The amendment may impact municipalities that are currently required to defend, in court, the rejection of an affordable housing project (if a developer appeals such rejection). These municipalities may participate in fewer legal hearings as a result of the bill. To the extent this occurs, there is a potential, minimal savings associated with reduced legal and administrative expenses.
