Land Use and Labor Law

While my family members continue to occupy the state capitol in Madison along with thousands of others seeking to protect workers' rights in Wisconsin, I have been avidly reading all the news coverage.

Rick Hills at PrawfsBlag has an interesting take on the situation that might appeal to us Land Use-y types. He likens the governor's proposal to prohibit collective bargaining rights to Nollan/Dolan's limitation on exactions, arguing neither one will really get carried out in realty. Not sure I agree (and some commenters clearly do not), but I thank Rick for introducing me to a way to understand the situation through a land use lens.

I'm impressed-- in class, I take pride in being able to turn anything into a land use issue, but I hadn't thought of anything on this one!

There has got to be some land use issue wrapped up in the occupation of public buildings, no? How about zoning for protest space (like those free speech zones folks make so much fun of). Or just what happens to land use regulation and enforcement when the government is effectively shut down?
