Comments
Despite the recent Oregon Sup Ct ruling overturning the trial ct on Measure 37 we see no change in the practical effects of AB 675 in WI. It will harm local gov't, public process, sound land use planning and, ultimately, property owners, as well.

AB 675 is modeled closely on Oregon's Measure 37, which was ruled unconstitutional and invalid by the Oregon circuit court on October 14, 2005.

AB 675 tips the balance such that local government will have no ability to implement new land use ordinances without incurring huge financial risk for compensatory damages due to perceived loss in fair market value of private property.
