PEA Would Extend Effective Period for Permits

Synopsis of article:

The Permit Extension Act (“PEA”), 2010-240 Mass. Adv. Legis. Serv. 173 (LexisNexis), was enacted in 2010 as part of an extensive package for economic development and recovery legislation. The PEA is intended to streamline development projects by automatically extending the effective period of almost any permit by two years. Recently, the Massachusetts House passed legislation that would modify the PEA by extending the qualifying period for permits eligible for extension of their expiration dates, and by doubling the extension provided by the PEA from two years to four years.(more)
