Will California Governor Jerry Brown cut funding for redevelopment agencies?
Jessica Levinson was quoted in this story about the future of development agencies.
Here is an excerpt:
Jessica Levinson ... said Proposition 22 is one of the most complicated ballot measures she’s ever seen. And she said it hasn’t been tested in court.
“I do think it’s likely that, if local mayors think there is a chance, then they’ll spend the money to wage that battle,” she said.
Levinson said the non-partisan Legislative Analysts Office believes Brown’s proposal is sound and that redevelopment agencies are not always as profitable for cities as they claim to be. But the San Diego Mayor’s office said redevelopment has worked here and that the city is used as a model for others. And they want to keep it that way.
