Last week I wrote about a bill moving through the Texas House of Representatives that would force local governments to compensate landowners when strict land use regulations reduce property values (see here). House Bill 2833 passed the House on May 10th and is now under consideration in the Senate. According to the Dallas Morning News: The whole article is here. And be sure to check out the bill's status on the Texas Legislature's website to read the amended text and track it as it navigates through the Legislature.
