O’Donnell advances the Long Beach Agenda
Sacramento – Today, Assembly Bill 204, authored by Assemblymember Patrick O’Donnell (D-Long Beach), passed its first legislative hurdle with unanimous, bipartisan support. The bill, which is sponsored by the City of Long Beach, allows local governments in Los Angeles County to continue to control the wind-down of their redevelopment agencies.
Current law requires, by July 1, 2016, all local oversight boards in Los Angeles County to consolidate into a single entity. Given the large number of local boards in the Los Angeles, this “one-size-fits-all” approach unfairly burdens cities and removes local control.
