Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Electric Vehicle Charging Act.

Provides that every county and municipality which has the power to issue building permits and otherwise control the construction of buildings shall require by ordinance that an applicant seeking a building permit to construct tiny homes for at-risk veterans must include with the permit application a completed and signed affidavit stating that all buildings constructed under the permit are designated for the exclusive use of qualifying veterans who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and in need of secure, long-term affordable housing.

Limits the concurrent exercise of home rule powers. Defines terms. Effective immediately.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 2
