AB 113 (Committee on Budget), the Department of Finance (DOF)-sponsored redevelopment dissolution bill. One hundred and fifteen cities oppose this measure due to the significant financial harm it would cause. This was the second time this bill has stalled; the same committee previously cancelled its July 13 hearing a few hours prior to the hearing. Despite many meetings with senators, DOF refused to budge on key issues relating to repaying city loans. Thus the bill failed to proceed due to a lack of votes. Cities should thank their senators for their thoughtful and principled approach. The focus now shifts to whether the Assembly will develop a more workable alternative.
