Currently the First Class Township Code allows an individual to take a municipality to court to challenge the constitutionality of an ordinance.

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
