Two weeks ago we filed California Redevelopment Association v. Matosantos, an original writ proceeding in the California Supreme Court challenging a two-bill package in which the Legislature first eliminated California's 400 redevelopment agencies and then stayed execution if the agencies, or their sponsoring cities and counties, pay $1.7 billion this year and $400 million annually thereafter, primarily for support of the schools.
