This bill stinks. Vote against it. Don't discriminate.

J.B. Lorette writes:

It is important that this limitation on what is "normal" use of a residence -- that is, in a single family neighborhood -- be passed. It keeps businesses, such as boarding houses, hotels, and the like from sprouting up in what has been intended as use by families and small groups.
