The Government & Fiscal Affairs Council serves as the Chamber’s primary committee to evaluate legislation and policies that affect the broad business community and civic life including taxes, regulations and government reforms. They will meet monthly to monitor and act on general business regulatory issues and will focus on L.A. City public policy issues.
How would you reform CEQA locally?
Wednesday, Sept. 23
10 - 11:30 a.m.
In a first-of-its-kind analysis, a comprehensive review of more than 600 lawsuits filed under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) was recently conducted at the local, regional and state agency levels from 2010-2012. The findings run counter to the common perception that CEQA litigation is primarily used to benefit the environment and instead show that CEQA lawsuits most frequently target infill housing and public works projects, such as those of transit and renewable energy.
Join us for a candid discussion on these statewide findings with the study's author from Holland & Knight, as well as a more localized review of CEQA-related challenges with Los Angeles City Engineer Gary Lee Moore. In addition, we encourage you to share your experiences and join our regional coalition as the Chamber works to draft recommendations for the City concerning localized CEQA reform.
