PCL Sets 2017 Legislative Priorities
This is the Year of Housing in the Capitol (not officially, but you wouldn’t know it from the more than 130 bills introduced on the subject).
PCL is deep in the race, focusing on high-impact CEQA, natural resource, local initiative, and land use bills. Last month, we reviewed 2,757 introduced bills, identified more than 50 affecting our core interests, and prioritized 15 of them based on their impact. In addition, we are tracking another 26 and may engage on them if necessary to prevent negative impacts on the environment.
