See larger Sen. Burt Saunders, R-Naples: 

He isn’t sponsoring any affordable housing legislation but in the past has fought against raids of the Sadowski Act, set up in the 1990s to fund affordable housing efforts. During the 2006 session, Saunders filed a growth management bill that would allow Collier officials to post more stringent concurrency requirements. He is also sponsoring a measure this session on concurrency that will allow closer cooperation between county officials and developers. “I’ve in the past defended the affordable housing funds, which were in danger of being raided during leaner budget years,” Saunders said. “Obviously, I’ll support whatever legislation comes out of this session.”
