Aug. 11 Informative Webinar ScheduledThe League this week announced a new tool available for its member cities — the League of California Cities Health Benefits Marketplace™ (HBM). The HBM is designed to help cities address rising OPEB liabilities and healthcare costs by offering a variety of health benefit solutions for active employees and retirees on a user-friendly platform. This tool provides cities with a flexibility lacking in traditional group coverage medical plans by decoupling and unbundling active employee from retiree costs, which is key to reducing OPEB liabilities. Mark your calendars for a free informational webinar on Aug. 11.

League Shares Alternative Concepts with Housing Committee Leadership
Since Gov. Jerry Brown unveiled his by right housing proposal, which would pre-empt local discretionary land use approvals of specified housing developments by having all such approvals be considered “ministerial” actions, the League has been a vocal opponent because it would eliminate opportunities for public input and project-level environmental review and restrict design review which are necessary to ensure public transparency, accountability and achieve quality development.
A coalition of over 60 environmental, labor, tenants-rights and social justice groups have also opposed this proposal for similar reasons.
