Part II: Has the GOP Gone Rogue on Private Property Rights?

Yesterday, over 40% of the Republican Assembly Caucus voted to restore corporate welfare for developers and allow local agencies to use eminent domain to forcibly seize homes and small businesses by eminent domain.

In 2011, California Republican Legislators voted to abolish redevelopment agencies, public agencies that used taxpayer dollars to forcibly seize homes and small businesses by eminent domain. By saying no more to taxpayer financed development, like shopping malls, luxury hotels and golf courses, taxpayers saved over $5 billion a year!

But now, some 12 Republicans have signed onto Assembly Bill 2, aka "Redevelopment 2.0," which aims to restore corporate welfare for politically connected developers. Even Governor Jerry Brown thought this Democratic bill was a bad idea - vetoing versions of this bill twice already.

So who are the "Dirty Dozen" that have gone rogue on the GOP? We urge you to call them. Why should your hard earned tax dollars go for this purpose?

Larry GilbertSadly there are many in the CA GOP who have not supported our efforts to stop redevelopment and eminent domain abuses in our state. Some of our major "champions" such as Tom McClintock, Mimi Walters, Chuck DeVore and Chris Norby are no longer serving in that body.4   ·  2 weeks ago

Tom BarrettSince the Dumbassocrats have controlled this state it has become a magnet for people that are druggies, welfare barons, illegal aliens, unemployment scammers and non productive blood suckers! All middle class working people are going broke trying to make ends meet and A-Holes like Boxer and Feinstein's families are getting richer on BS things like the train to no where! It seemed like the laws apply only to we the people and the most corrupt of our society, politicians , do what ever they want with total disregard for the damage they do to the rest of us. We need to wake up and vote in Term Limits and make politicians live by all the laws, retirement ie: Social Security and be held accountable for a balanced budget using anyone but there crony committee associates to investigate fraud in all governments!6   ·  2 weeks ago

Is the California GOP Going Rogue on Private Property Rights?

In 2011, California Republican Legislators joined Democrats in abolishing redevelopment agencies, public agencies that used taxpayer dollars to forcibly seize homes and small businesses by eminent domain. This bold move saved California taxpayers over $5 billion a year!

But now, some Republicans have signed onto Assembly Bill 2, aka "Redevelopment 2.0," which aims to restore corporate welfare for politically connected developers. Even Governor Jerry Brown thought it was a bad idea - vetoing versions of this bill twice already.

The following Republican Assembly Members voted for AB 2 in committee. Urge them to stand firm against the redevelopment lobby, and to stand with California taxpayers when the bill comes to the Assembly Floor!

Larry GilbertAB-2 " Redevelopment light" " If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck and walks like a duck, it's a duck". As soon as your local agency starts a dialogue on a redevelopment project or zone check out the criteria to qualify under the proposed Bill. Gov. Brown veto'd a similar Bill last year.2 weeks ago

The California Alliance to Protect Private Property RightsWe just learned that AB2 passed on the floor of the State Assembly with considerable Republican support. A number of Republicans voted for it, while other Republicans simply abstained, which is essentially a "yes" vote. We will update you on who voted for a bill that invites eminent domain abuse and corporate welfare! Stay tuned...1   ·  2 weeks ago
