    Brilliant legislation!
    Cut these RPC weasels off at the kneecaps.
    The smart thing to do is have someone there to identify all those who speak against this bill and see what interests they have in stopping it.
    Follow the money!

    Dang fascist GOP, with your local control, and constrained government! By Golly, if a 96 mile solar power monorail is appropriate for Seattle, Washington, it’s appropriate for Amherst, New Hampshire!

  • Why does a “planning commission” need outside cash?
    Studies? Polls? Investigations? Lawsuit defense/instagation?
    Mid project change orders?
    Room, board, incidentals at “panels” held in exotic locations?
    Travel/speaking expenses for guest “experts”?
    “The Latest” technology to accommodate the “paper reduction act”?
    Siri? Alexa? Ask Jeeves?
