  • LAND USE COST-BENEFIT BILL DEAD

    Posted: July 25, 2013 | Posted by Crystal Whitfield | No Comments

    SB 673 (DeSaulnier; D-Concord) a bill that would have eroded local governments’ ability to make land use decisions and move forward with infrastructure and development projects that receive over $1 million in subsidies without a state-mandated economic impact report, died on the Senate Floor on an 18-18 vote.  After a hard fought battle, nine Democrats voted against the bill or abstained, joining all Republicans.

    We believe that local governments are able to make decisions regarding such projects in a well-informed manner. Under current law, local governments can seek advice from a broad range of other government agencies and consultants, and regularly require cost-benefit analysis of projects, and we are relieved to see this bill stopped.
