Governor Signs League-Supported Bill Promoting Local Economic Development and Flexibility

Gov. Jerry Brown signed three League-supported bills today providing for local government flexibility, additional vital resources and control.
Of note, the Governor signed League-supported SB 470 (Wright) sponsored by the City of Long Beach, which provides additional flexibility on property disposal.  Earlier versions of the measure would have also restored “Polanco Act’ brownfield remediation authority to local governments, but the author later opted to drop this provision because the issue was addressed in a broader form in AB 440 (Gatto), also recently signed by the Governor. The League thanks Senator Rod Wright, D-Inglewood, for his leadership on the matter.
