2020 - Senate Bill 995 (Atkins, Toni), Jobs and Economic Improvement Through Environmental Leadership Act of 2011: Extension and Housing Projects (Dead)
Transportation Planning, Land Use, and Housing, CEQA
Office of Legislative Affairs
Would have extended the Jobs and Economic Improvement through Environmental Leadership Act of 2011 (AB 900, Buchanan, Chapter 345, Statutes of 2011) until January 1, 2025. The bill would have also expanded eligibility to include smaller housing projects and specified procedures for the quantification and mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions, including removing CARB’s role, authorizing the Office of Planning and Research to charge a fee for the greenhouse gas determination, and prioritizing on-site and local direct greenhouse gas emissions reductions over emission offset measures. Failed passage on Senate Concurrence.
