Challenge Filed Against Redevelopment Bills ABX1 26 and ABX1 27
The California Redevelopment Association (CRA) and the League of California Cities (LOCC) together with named Plaintiffs, the City of Union City and the City of San Jose, filed a petition on Wednesday, July 18 asking the California Supreme Court to overturn Assembly Bill X1 26 and Assembly Bill X1 27. These bills would dissolve Redevelopment Agencies unless their sponsoring jurisdictions agree to make payments in support of local taxing entities. The petition alleges that the bills violate the California Constitution, including Propositions 1A and 22, it requests the Court to issue a stay on the implementation of the bills by August 15, and it requests a decision on the merits by December 20.
