SACRAMENTO – In an editorial today, the San Francisco Chronicle calls on the legislature to pass meaningful CEQA reform that levels the playing field for all projects. Under current law, CEQA is frequently exploited by special interests to delay and kill worthy projects throughout the state, and comprehensive reform is needed to curb these misuses of the law.

The Chronicle is one of many newspapers throughout California that have editorialized in favor of meaningful CEQA reform this year.

San Francisco Chronicle, Editorial , September 5, 2013

  • “If the playing field is uneven, let’s level it for all.”
