Malek bill restricting urban renewal districts’ inspection powers passes House, 69-0

Freshman Rep. Luke Malek’s bill to remove authority for urban renewal districts to enter into any property, including private homes, within the districts to make inspections has passed the House unanimously, 69-0, with no debate. “I don’t know that it’s ever been used, but it’s certainly antithetical to our view of private property rights in Idaho,” Malek, R-Coeur d’Alene, told the House. The bill, HB 137, now moves to the Senate side for consideration.
