California Legislative Reforms

The Alliance is opposed to three bills that would all revive Redevelopment (RDA 2.0).  While the mechanisms and agencies each bill creates differ slightly, all three would create local agencies with the unchecked power of eminent domain and the ability to divert local tax dollars to fund corporate welfare for politically connected developers.

We need your help to make sure these bills are vetoed by Governor Jerry Brown! Please take a moment to email him, let him know that you oppose all efforts to revive Redevelopment! Click here to contact Governor Brown.

AB 2280 Alejo, (Salinas-D): VETO. AB 229 Perez, (D): Veto.  Reestablishes RDA (RDA 2.0) and gives Community Revitalization and Investment Authorities the power of eminent domain without any limits on private use. Click here to read the Alliance’s Veto Request letter.

AB 229 Perez, (Los Angeles-D): VETO. Reestablishes RDA (RDA 2.0) and gives “Infrastructure Revitalization and Financing Districts” the power of eminent domain without any limits on private use. Click here to read the Alliance’s Veto Request letter.

SB 628 Beall, (San Jose-D): VETO. Reestablishes RDA (RDA 2.0) and gives “Enhanced Infrastructure Financing Districts” (EIFDs) the power of eminent domain without any limits on private use. Furthermore, this bill will delete the only check on Redevelopment’s power: the necessity of designating an area as “blighted,” thus making it easier for these newly formed EIFDs to forcibly seize private property and handout Corporate Welfare.  Click here to read the Alliance’s Veto Request letter.
