Many local communities and homeowners be permitted to prohibit drying your clothes outside on a line? States, Commonwealths and Providences are considering passing laws to give homeowners/renters the RIGHT to dry clothes outside. The main reason is to prevent "carbon footprints. The question though is "does the majority rule"? This should especially be the case in a homeowners association. If the majority do not want junk cars and cloth lines, should the be forced by a higher lever of government to do so. Do you want the State making these decisions? (mind you this is NOT the federal govt. In essence, a person know the rules / laws before he moves in. Thoughts?
