Montana successfully reformed its housing policy

Montana successfully reformed its housing policy

The Atlantic recently published a great piece entitled, "The Anti-California, How Montana performed a housing miracle." The author details all the problems Montana was having with housing affordability, resulting from strict and costly regulations and existing homeowners who rise up to oppose any new development. This will be familair to anyone who has worked on municipal housing issues. The "miracle' the title alludes to is how swiftly the state legislature acted to overcome those hurdles. Faced with high housing costs due to restricted supply and the NIMBY opposition that popped this up, the article focused on how state leaders acted.
