Rep. Doug Miller sits at his desk as the Indiana House meets on Monday, Feb. 8, inside the temporary chamber at the Government Center South in Indianapolis. 

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A proposed ban on Indiana cities and counties adopting local housing design standards is being pushed by a state lawmaker from Elkhart who owns a homebuilding company.

Ethics experts maintain Republican Rep. Doug Miller's involvement in the legislation is inappropriate because of his ownership of Elkhart-based Tailor Made Homes and his role on the board of directors for the National Association of Homebuilders, The Indianapolis Star reported.

No conflict of interest here , these are part time servants whom have expertise in their fields

Look at the weather. , If we had less restrictive design regulations we would have affordable housing for all , including the homeless, but no.. bureaucrats have to make everything so expensive . How sad

These GOP politicians who write these bills hoping we don't care and those that later defend them are what's wrong with government. Writing a bill to benefit yourself is one of the sleaziest things they can do. They don't even try to hide it anymore...Claiming it will help good, but when it passes, they ignore and only benefit their own building company to make more money for themselves....Remember this and stop voting for them. We can do better than this and it doesn't have to be this way.

That is what we have been trying to tell you for some time now about DemonRats, Joe. You know! Like what Old Nan said 3/9/2010 about Obama care...."We need to pass a bill so that can we find out what is in it!" Just vote them out Joe. Just vote if you can!
