CSHB 3167 seeks to expedite the permitting process so that there is greater predictability for developers and lower costs for consumers. This bill would streamline the development and permitting process by requiring jurisdictions to conduct more thorough initial reviews followed by substantive comments on an application that the developer can then address. After the developer addresses the initial round of substantive comments, the jurisdiction will only be permitted to re-review the amendments, without any availability to review any other parts of the application that were not initially deemed deficient.
