"Business" standing to challenge amendments = The Admin Comm'n Blinks

The Admin Commission overturned the ALJ's determination that a non-profit organization formed for the purpose of supporting good growth policies was not a "business" for the purposes of standing to attack the consistency of a plan amendment approval.

However, the AC didn't find that the ALJ was wrong. Instead, it determined that because another petitioner had standing, the standing of Citizens for Proper Planning was legally irrelevant and didn't need to be decided. It then went on to say that the issue is "debatable" (oh, please!) and asked the Legislature for guidance.

Here's the Final Order (thanks to Larry Sellers for forwarding it to me).
