Church V. State

Just pray you're not sued under the RLUIPA statute, say Michael Giaimo and Dwight Merriam in Planning Practice.

"RLUIPA (pronounced "Ree-Loopa") is federal zoning for religious uses, plain and simple. The provision of the statute that gets the most attention from planners is section 2000cc(A)(1), which says that, subject to some exceptions, local and state governments may not 'impose or implement a land use regulation in a manner that imposes a substantial burden on the religious exercise of a person, including a religious assembly or institution.'"
