       League of California Cities 2010 Legislative Briefing
                   Environment & CEQA
Governor’s Signing Message for AB 231 & SB 1456:
•   “other than the (tiering & mediation) provisions, . . . these bills are 99% garbage.”

•   “. . . neither I nor the Legislature should fool ourselves into thinking that these bills
    even make a dent in the problems caused by CEQA’s spaghetti-like requirements.”

•   “I am greatly disappointed that the Legislature did not see fit to send to my desk a
    more substantive bill . . . designed to reduce widespread and rampant abuses.”

•   “There can be no doubt that the opportunistic user of CEQA is, by far, the worst
    offender, providing needless fodder to special interest groups bent on miring
    necessary and worthwhile development in years of litigation . . .”

•   “. . . next year’s crop of state lawmakers . . . will again face the unique challenge of
    reining in CEQA abuses in the face of blind opposition determined to maintain an
    unworkable status quo.”
