Assembly Bill 1000 (Reyes) 

CA Assembly Bill 1000, introduced by Assemblymember Eloise G√≥mez Reyes (D-Colton), bans new warehouse projects over 100,000 s.f. within 1,000 feet of a "sensitive" receptor. A de facto ban on warehouses will kill new housing and jobs reliant on these projects.

Current Status: 

AB 1000 was heard by the Assembly Local Government Committee on Thursday, April 27, 2023, where it failed to receive the required votes to pass through the committee. The bill ultimately received two aye votes and one no vote, with five committee members abstaining from the vote. Without sufficient votes to pass through committee, AB 1000 failed. The Committee Chair granted reconsideration making AB 1000 a two year bill, so while it has been defeated for the time-being, it's likely to resurface. 


Much needed housing projects and infrastructure improvements in designated development areas are reliant on warehousing projects. A de facto ban on warehouses will worsen California's housing crisis.


The bill kills warehouse, logistics, and construction related jobs and requires workers to travel much farther to jobs.


AB 1000 will disrupt California's ability to effectively and efficiently move goods to where they are needed. The bill breaks an essential link in the state’s supply chain, increasing truck travel and making goods more expensive for no actual environmental benefit.


The ports are not moving – but this bill will push warehouses into more rural areas in Eastern California or out of state. This will increase particulate pollution, vehicle miles travelled, and greenhouse gas emissions of both the goods movement sector and workers.


      • AB 1000 applies statewide to buildings over 100,000 s.f. used for logistics or warehousing.
      • The bill includes a 1,000 foot buffer that drops back to 750 feet if a series of mitigations and studies are met, including new restrictions of heavy-duty vehicles and new requirements for clean fleets, and many others.
      • AB 1000 includes a broad definition of sensitive receptors. This includes residential, daycare, schools, health care, community center, places of worship, places of incarceration, and playfields.
      • The bill includes new notification and meeting requirements for projects, up to two miles for schools, and additional language notifications.
