Assembly Speaker-Elect Toni Atkins (D-San Diego) clarifying current law governing the dissolution of local redevelopment agencies (RDA). The bill, AB 471 (Atkins), represents a second attempt by the Speaker-Elect to address RDA dissolution issues after the Governor vetoed her previous bill, AB 662, last year. AB 471, which passed unanimously in its final form, makes several helpful changes affecting the dissolution process and clarifies that infrastructure finance districts (IFD) can be established on territory within a former RDA project area. The League appreciates the continued work and efforts of the Speaker-Elect to develop solutions that address issues affecting redevelopment dissolution.
