    3         Between lines 37 and 38
    4  insert:
    5         (11)(a) It is the intent of the Legislature to encourage
    6  the concentration of development in those counties that have
    7  established urban communities in order to preserve the unspoiled
    8  nature of the state’s most rural areas. However, the Legislature
    9  resolves to apply such principle only to those noncharter
   10  counties specified in paragraph (b), in recognition of the
   11  traditionally broad home rule power exercised by charter
   12  counties.
   13  	(b) A noncharter county with a population of more than
   14  450,000, as determined by the Office of Economic and Demographic
   15  Research, may not adopt a comprehensive plan amendment to create
   16  a rural protection overlay district unless approved by a
   17  unanimous vote of the county commission.

   32         amendment to create a rural protection overlay
   33         district unless approved by the unanimous vote of the
   34         county commission; providing an effective date.
