Charter Schools Zoning (Oppose – Mandate)

CS/CS/HB 1029 (Rodriguez, Anthony) includes language that would allow charter school the ability to expand under their preexisting zoning without obtaining a special exception or rezoning. The bill requires a local government, if requested by a charter school, to provide within 14 days a written justification for any challenged requirements. The bill would also award attorneys fees and court costs to charter schools only if they prevailed. (Branch)
