Proposal to Eliminate Redevelopement Agencies Creates Uncertainties for Some California Projects


Governor Brown’s initial budget proposal includes the elimination of redevelopment agencies so that current uncommitted agency funds and future property tax increment revenues may be diverted from redevelopment to other uses.
