An Act To Remove the Legislative Council from the Capitol Area Development Approval Process
Sec. 1. 5 MRSA §304, as amended by PL 2011, c. 691, Pt. B, §6, is further amended to read:
§ 304. Approval of construction projects
A construction project may not be initiated in the Capitol Area for the development of state buildings and grounds following the adoption of the plan or amendments and additions thereto by the Legislature without the approval of the Legislative Council, the Bureau of General Services and the commission of the proposals and plans for the project.
This bill eliminates the requirement that construction projects in the Capitol Area receive approval of the Legislative Council.
