Local Government Authority Statewide Disaster Declarations

Abstract

The bill permits the majority of the governing body of any county or municipality by adoption of a resolution, ordinance, law, or rule to abrogate all or any portion of a disaster emergency order applying to the county or municipality that has been issued by the governor under the governor's emergency management powers when the disaster emergency lasts longer than 30 days. Upon the enactment by the governing body of such a resolution, ordinance, law, or rule the order, or any portion of the order, has no legal force and effect within, as applicable, the municipality or within the unincorporated portions of the county where the resolution, ordinance, law, or rule has been approved by the governing body of a county. The bill prohibits the state and any state department, institution, or agency from taking any action against a county or municipality, including without limitation any action resulting in denial of a monetary payment or the provision of any other form of financial assistance in retaliation for action by the governing body of the county or municipality to abrogate the governor's order. The bill requires the governing body of the county or municipality to notify the governor and any affected state departments, institutions, or agencies of the adoption of such resolution, ordinance, law, or rule. (Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
