|Subject:||Reimbursement for Legal Fees - Borough|
|In the near future I plan on introducing legislation amending the Borough Code. Currently the Borough Code allows an individual to take a municipality to court to challenge the constitutionality of an ordinance. My legislation would expand this to allow an individual to challenge bylaws, rules and regulations implemented by a municipality in court. My legislation also gives the individual challenging the ordinance the ability to be reimbursement for any legal costs incurred should the court find that the municipality violated the law and enacted an unconstitutional ordinance or regulation.
Please join me in cosponsoring this important legislation.
