Group Home Legislation Causes Stir

County Councilman James Burn has proposed an ordinance that would require group homes with two or more disabled people to register before accepting residents. The proposed legislation has caused a stir among many advocacy groups because they claim it discriminates against a specific class of citizens by limiting the requirements to only those who are disabled. Councilman Burn says that he will not change or back down from this legislation.
