This bill would create a new special purpose district "to promote, develop, encourage, and maintain employment, commerce, transportation, housing, tourism, recreation, the arts, entertainment, economic development, safety, and the public welfare in the district." The district would be a part of a broader class of special districts known as Municipal Management Districts (MMD). This bill would grant municipal-type authority to a non-municipal entity, essentially creating a city within a city that lacks true accountability, which does not bode well towards supporting our liberty principles.
This district would have the authority to issue bonds, impose taxes, and annex land. Creating this new management district grows the size, scope, and cost of government. For these reasons we oppose HB 2332.
