GA - House brokers deal on 'stay rule'
House brokers deal on 'stay rule' | ajc.com: "The House on Thursday approved a bill that would limit the time legal appeals can delay work on landfills, power plants and other facilities requiring environmental permits.
But the version of Senate Bill 190 that passed 132 to 21 was far more environment- and citizen-friendly than the one sent over by the Senate.
A compromise worked out Thursday would give neighbors and environmental groups more time to gather evidence against an unwanted facility. Construction could be delayed up to 150 days, rather than the 30 or 90 days previously considered."
