Sat. May 14. Teleconference CANCELLED. The Worst Bill of 2022!


We are sorry, but Senator Stern cancelled this Sunday's teleconference. Our next regular teleconference will be Saturday May 14 at 10 AM.


AB 2011 could be the worst bill of 2022 for taking away local control!

  • AB 2011 was a gut and amend that created a massive new bill on April 18th
  • It requires ministerial approval of construction across a broad category of zones – including office, retail, and parking.
  • AB 2011 is a massive state taking of flexibility needed by local jurisdictions to place housing where it best meets the needs of the community.
  • CEQA is circumvented on these projects. CEQA is an important source of information to the community and developers and helps protect the environment.
  • Parking is not allowed for these projects. Parking is a necessary feature for many developments. Any developments containing commercial space are particularly sensitive to parking needs.
  • The bill’s labor requirements make the cost of housing higher than necessary when what we need is more affordability.
  • The bill’s contains monthly labor reporting requirements that are a burden on both construction contractors and the local governments expected to enforce the bill’s labor requirements.
  • The department is allowed to adopt guidelines or terms that are not subject to the Administrative Procedures Act Government, taking away an important review process.
  • AB 2011 details pages of standards imposed by the state that are best left to local communities.
