AB 2447: Playing with fire 2008

 
CLCV Supported
Passed Senate 21-17 (8/22/08)
Passed Assembly 42-31 (8/30/08)
Vetoed by the Governor

Developers and local governments have little incentive to make sure that new housing developments, especially those that sprawl into fire-prone wildland areas, are fire-safe, which puts firefighters as well as homeowners at risk. AB 2447 (Jones) would have prohibited cities and counties from approving a residential development project until it had made a finding that the new subdivision had adequate fire protection, including such features as two escape routes, room for vehicle turnarounds, defensible spaces and emergency water systems.
