House Ok’s cleanup of Bloomington’s HRA statutory authority

Deleting references to sections of law repealed in 1987 and making it clear Bloomington is governed by the general statute that covers all housing and redevelopment authorities across the state is the goal of a bill passed 108-22 by the House Monday.

Sponsored by Rep. Steve Elkins (DFL-Bloomington), HF3834 now goes to the Senate where Sen. Melissa Wiklund (DFL-Bloomington) is the sponsor.

In 1971, Bloomington was one of the first cities authorized to have a housing and redevelopment authority. Six years later the law was amended to, in part, add a section specific to the housing and redevelopment authority of the city of South St. Paul.

Statutory language governing housing and redevelopment authorities was updated and recodified in 1987; however, language from the 1971 and 1977 laws remains.
