Nevada has brought the proposal out of a senate committee for a floor vole. The measure won approval by the slate assembly a week ago. 2713. but many senators predict il will nui pass in Hie Senate.

The Texas Legislature approved the ERA in 1972. but a move is under way to gel lawmakers lo rescind their approval. Two slates counted among the 34 approving stales, Nebraska and Tennessee, have voted lo lake back approval, but whether Ihis move is legal is up for debate.

She said the prime agricultural land should not be "squandered by subdivisions and recreational developments." adding that Ihe Treasure Valley around Boise is a good example of "urban sprawl" and a "waslo of land." The mandatory final plan deadline of Jan. 1, 1978, should be more flexible, she said, because several communities will have lo do a great deal of research lo implement comprehensive planning and zoning ordinances. The seven land use planning bills would: -- Rccodify old laws and make local governments implement land use planning ordinances. -- Make available lo local governments the legal and lech- nical assistance of Ihc slale government in forming land use planning regulations. -- Allow for public hearings on land use mailers of regional concern and impact. -- Allow the stale to designate areas of slalewidc concern. -- Change the definition of subdivision from five acres or larger lo any portion of land cut into Ihree or more sections. -- Make lhe Slale Division of Budget and Policy Planning Ihc coordinating agency on land use planning by federal, local and slale governments. -- Set up a timetable act that provides for a draft plan hy Jan. 1, 1977, and a final plan by Jan. 1. 1978.
