Low-voltage Alarm System Projects (Oppose) – Passed 

CS/SB 496 (Perry) and CS/HB 535 (Snyder) expand the criteria for the installation of low-voltage electric fences in areas not considered to be zoned exclusively for single-family or multifamily residential use if the area is within more than one zoning category. Of concern to local government, the bills prohibit the regulation of low-voltage alarms in any manner that is more restrictive than state law. CS/HB 535 passed the House (119-0) and the Senate (40-0) and is awaiting action by the Governor. (Branch)
