TALLAHASSEE — A Senate panel drastically amended a proposal Tuesday that dictates when and for what purpose local governments can collect impact fees, tens of millions of dollars of which are paid each year by developers.
Impact fees are collected by local counties, cities or school boards when a developer proposes a major new project. The money is used to make upgrades to roads and other infrastructure to accommodate new development. In 2015, counties and cities collected nearly $730 million in impact fees.
