This proposed law would repeal an existing state law that allows a qualified organization that wants to build low- or moderate-income housing to apply for a single comprehensive permit from a city or town's zoning board of appeals, instead of having to obtain separate permits from each local agency or official having jurisdiction.

The repeal would take effect Jan. 1, but would not affect any proposed housing that had already received a comprehensive permit and a building permit.

A yes vote would repeal the state law allowing the issuance of a single comprehensive permit to build low- or moderate-income housing.

A no vote would keep the state law allowing issuance of a single comprehensive permit to build low- or moderate-income housing.

3

This proposed law would reduce the state sales and use tax rates from 6.25% to 3% on Jan. 1. If the 3% rates would not produce enough revenues to satisfy any lawful pledge in connection with any bond, note, or other contractual obligation, then the rates would instead be reduced to the lowest level allowed by law. If any part of the law were declared invalid, the other parts would stay in effect.

A yes vote would reduce the state sales and use tax rates to 3%.

A no vote would keep the state sales and use tax rates at 6.25%.
