Another bill we have been working on very hard also moved this week passing the Assembly Appropriations Committee on another party-line vote. SB 469 (Juan Vargas; D-San Diego) would require additional economic and community impact analyses for retail developments that are 90,000 feet or larger and sell groceries. The open secret in the Capitol is that the purpose of this bill is to allow certain company’s projects to more easily be harassed by activists.

We need your help now to communicate with legislators that this bad bill should be stopped on the Assembly Floor. Click here, then go to “get involved” to send a letter.

Recently the president of the Independent Cities Association wrote an editorial clearly articulating reasons why SB 469 is bad policy, that would not only hurt the overall economy, but make it more difficult for local leaders to choose what is best for their communities.
