The issue: Franklin County, Pa., with a five-year population growth of 6.3 percent, faces increased burdens on its water, sewer, road and school systems. Three area state representatives have sponsored a bill to enact impact fees, raise the realty transfer tax and allow temporary growth moratoriums in parts of Pennsylvania.

What's new: A public hearing Tuesday in Chambersburg, Pa., allowed officials from local governments and school districts as well as builders and Realtors to list changes they would like to see in the proposal.

What's next: The bill must be voted on in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives Local Government Committee.
