This summary is provided for information only and does not represent the opinion of any Senator, Senate Officer, or Senate Office.

  • Schematic drawings; and
  • Diagrams, including draft, preliminary, and final formats, which depict the internal layout or structural elements of an attractions and recreation facility, entertainment or resort complex, industrial complex, retail and service development, office development, health care facility, or hotel or motel development.
