MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker has signed a bill expanding property owner rights and barring counties from imposing development moratoriums.

The bill cuts down on ways local governments can interfere with property transactions. It forbids municipalities from blocking property owners from selling or transferring land titles and bars counties from regulating repairs on structures legally located in shore land setback areas.

The bill also requires judges to resolve ambiguity in zoning ordinances in favor of property owners.

Walker signed the legislation Tuesday afternoon at J&S; General Contracting in Osceloa, Wisconsin.
