Environment, Energy and Land Use Legislative Update

May 12, 2008

Authors: Matthew Ranelli

The 2008 legislative session adjourned on May 7, 2008. The table below is a preliminary list of new Public Acts regarding environment and land use that may be of interest.

The list is noticeably shorter than in recent years. Although the last few days of the session seemed quiet compared with years past, it appears the total number of new Public Acts will be very close to the number of Public Acts adopted in the most recent short session – 196 Public Acts in 2006 – and somewhat lower than what passed in 2004 (258).

As always, the numbers do not tell the whole story and each Act is important to those affected by it.
