Sims Targets Urban Renewal Again

For the second time in the last two years, the House Local Government Committee introduced a slate of urban renewal reform bills, though fewer measures are coming forth this time around. Rep. Kathy Sims, R-Coeur d’Alene, brought a retooled bill to force urban renewal agency commissioners to be elected to serve. It would, however, only apply to urban renewal districts created after July 1, 2012. Existing districts would still be able to choose how members are named to their oversight boards. “Having the board stand for election will have them be more accountable than what they are,” Sims said/Idaho Reporter. More here.

Question: Do you agree with Rep. Kathy Sims' legislation, attacking urban renewal law?
