AB 1000 (Reyes) Warehouse Ban - Dead for Now

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

Current Status: AB 1000 was initially introduced in 2023, but was held in the legislative process. It was reintroduced in 2024 and had been scheduled to be heard for a second and final vote by the Assembly Local Government Committee on Wednesday, January 10, 2024, however the author pulled the bill last minute. While the bill is inactive for now, we anticipate the introduction of a new bill prior to the deadline. 


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.

      • New amendments change how a buffer zone is measured to measure from property line of the logistics use center to property line of the sensitive receptor. 
      • The bill includes a 1,000-foot buffer that drops back to 500 feet if ZEV mitigations and met. (these mitigations are unattainable)
      • 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.
