HB 2190: Localities May Aggravate Effects of HB 2048

Virginia House Bill 2190 would, if enacted into law, allow local governments, e.g. Fauquier County, to make themselves more burdensome to citizens than HB 2048 requires them to be, in the name of "stormwater management":

It passed the House. I can see how this one might have seemed like a useful compromise, but if you support individual property rights, you won't like it.
