Take Action Against HB 3105

H.B. 3105 (Keffer) - Regulatory Takings/Oil and Gas would make a city regulation that damages, destroys, impairs, or prohibits development of a mineral interest subject to the Private Real Property Rights Preservation Act, which would:

  • (1) waive sovereign immunity to suit and liability for a regulatory taking;

  • (2) authorize a private real property owner to bring suit to determine whether the governmental action of a city results in a taking;

  • (3) require a city to prepare a "takings impact assessment" prior to imposing certain regulations; and

  • (4) require a city to post 30-days notice of the adoption of most regulations prior to adoption.
It has been set for a hearing on WEDNESDAY, March 6, at 2:00 p.m. (or on adjournment of the House) in the House Energy Resources Committee. Please contact your legislators and the members of the committee (the chair is the author) to express your opposition.
