New stormwater regulations proposed for Virginia have been put on hold, in part due to widespread opposition from developers and builders.

The Virginian-Pilot reports that Virginia's proposed new regulations are opposed as being too complex and putting too many limits on development -- particularly in this time of economic recession.

Maryland is in the midst of a similar debate, as new stormwater rules in the state -- set to take effect in May -- are being criticized by developers as undermining Smart Growth and discouraging redevelopment in urban areas.
