League Remains Opposed Due to Provisions Harmful to CitiesThe Senate on Thursday waived rules to enable AB 113 (Committee on Budget) to be heard Monday in the Senate Budget Committee. Despite the fact that Gov. Jerry Brown signed the FY 2015-16 budget several weeks ago, disputes have lingered over a 100-page bill drafted by the Department of Finance (DOF) that contains significant revisions to the redevelopment dissolution process, some of which seek to reverse recent court decisions benefitting affected cities. There may also be an attempt to move it quickly off the Senate Floor on the same day.

League Opposition Compels Amendments as Bill Moves to Senate Governance and Finance Committee for Hearing on July 15“One-size-doesn’t fit all” is the often-heard refrain from local officials reflecting the diversity of circumstances throughout 482 cities. However, AB 744, a measure that attempts to apply unrealistically-low housing parking criteria under state Density Bonus (DB) Law that may barely work for the few, let alone the many, is getting closer to Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk. The Senate Transportation and Housing Committee passed the measure on July 7 and it will next be heard by the Senate Governance and Finance Committee on Wednesday, July 15.
