Mandatory Inclusionary Zoning--The Answer To Affordable Housing Problem, Brian R. Lerman Jan 2006

Mandatory Inclusionary Zoning--The Answer To Affordable Housing Problem, Brian R. Lerman

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

Affordable housing has always been a problem in the United States. Cities and towns originally engaged in forms of discrimination through exclusionary zoning to exclude low-income residents. While many of the social attitudes persist today, the question is how to encourage new affordable housing development. This Note introduces the concept of inclusionary zoning as a successful method for creating affordable housing. The Note examines the constitutional analyses used for land use ordinances. Then, the Note evaluates existing affordable housing programs, distinguishing between the eastern approach and the western approach. The eastern approach—represented by New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Montgomery County ...

Tax Expenditures, Principal-Agent Problems, And Redundancy, David A. Weisbach Jan 2006

Tax Expenditures, Principal-Agent Problems, And Redundancy, David A. Weisbach

Washington University Law Review

This Article considers tax expenditures from two related perspectives. First, it analyzes how the incentives on Congress to use a tax expenditure change when principal-agent problems are considered. For example, it considers whether tax expenditures can reduce moral hazard or adverse selection problems created by delegations to expert agencies. Second, it considers the condition under which tax expenditures should be expected to be redundant with direct expenditures, as many are. The two perspectives—principal-agent problems and redundancy—are related because redundancy is often seen as a solution to the principal-agent problem. The Article concludes that both principal-agent concerns and redundancy ...

Seattle University Law Review

On August 1, 2005, significant amendments to the Washington Condominium Act (WCA) became effective.

A decade of lawsuits brought under the WCA by condominium owners associations against builders and developers, and in turn by builders against subcontractors, alleging defects in the ability of the ...
