Assembly Passes Medina Bill to Support Healthy Communities

Friday, September 22, 2017

(Sacramento) - Assemblymember Jose Medina (D - Riverside) presented his Assembly Bill 890 on the floor of the State Assembly, a bill which would prevent developer from avoiding an environmental review of their proposed projects. "Some developers are increasingly using the ballot initiative process for accelerated approval of large land use development projects. This allows projects to proceed without any regard for the environmental impact," Medina said. AB 890 will close this loophole and provide a pathway for a proposed initiative to have an environmental review.
