Senator Steinberg Introduces SB 731 as Initial Framework for CEQA Modernization

CEQA Working Group Coalition:


Today Senate President Pro Tempore Darrell Steinberg introduced SB 731, the initial bill that sets up CEQA modernization.  

SB 731 is a good starting point to establish the framework of meaningful CEQA modernization, and we are committed to working through the long process it will take to negotiate thoughtful changes to the law that will preserve CEQA's intent of environmental protection, while eliminating CEQA misuse that frequently kills good projects in California. 

You may also have heard that today Senator Michael J. Rubio (D-Bakersfield) announced his resignation from the State Senate effective immediately to address family issues. We are saddened to be losing one of our biggest champions for CEQA reform, but respect and understand his decision. Family comes first. At the same time, we are fortunate that the Governor, Senator Steinberg and democrats and republicans from both houses are committed to reform, and will continue work together to accomplish meaningful changes to CEQA.    

We will keep you updated as this process unfolds, and encourage you to continue communicating with legislators to reinforce the importance of this effort. Download talking points here
