Authored by Rep. David Hall (R- Norman, Dist. 62), HB 1108 would limit local options for regulating construction on slopes. Construction on slopes can lead to erosion which carries harmful sediment into waterways. Local governments are in the best position to understand the issues with their local terrain, soil types, and waterways, but HB 1108 would prohibit local regulation if a slope is less than 25%. The bill has an exemption allowing local regulation if the slope leads to a drinking water reservoir.
Update (as of 2/19):
HB 1108 has passed the Senate Natural Resources Committee.
Please ask your state senator to oppose HB 1108.
