The Cases for and Against. The hosts for this show are Mark Coleman and Tom Yamachika. The guest is Loren Seehase.
This week we look at Governor Green‘s Emergency Proclamation Relating to Housing, and his use of the emergency statutes to suspend many of the laws that account for delays upon delays in housing starts.
The proclamation has been on the books for a couple of months. It came after much effort was expended in developing the temporary rules that would be used under the emergency proclamation. As expected, some organizations unhappy with the proclamation and its consequences sued to invalidate it.
We examine some of the arguments for and against use of the emergency proclamation power in this context.
