County Authority During Declared Disaster
The bill permits the majority of the board of county commissioners of any county (board), by adoption of a resolution, to reject all or any portion of a disaster emergency order applying to the county that has been issued by the governor under the governor's emergency management powers. Upon the enactment by the board of such a resolution, the order that is the subject of the resolution, or any portion of the order that is discussed in the resolution, has no legal force and effect within the unincorporated portions of the county.
The bill requires the board to notify the governor and any affected state agencies of the adoption of such resolution.
