Texas public policy foundation
Special Session: Property Rights and the Local Government Permitting Process
 
LEGISLATOR'S GUIDE
 

Recommendations

• Reduce the regulatory burden that local municipalities like Austin have on businesses and building by lowering the time for approval and certain code requirements for permits.

• Prohibit municipal and county governments from imposing new regulations or requirements after property owners have acquired the necessary permits and permission to begin development or construction.

• The Texas Real Private Property Rights Preservation Act should be amended to apply to municipal actions relating to the permitting process.
