AB 1073: Solar done wrong

 
CLCV Opposed
Passed Senate 28-2 (3/26/12)
Passed Assembly concurrence 56-11 (5/10/12)
Signed into law by Gov. Brown (5/23/12)

The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) holds developers and government agencies accountable for the environmental impacts of development projects and gives the public a real voice in analyzing the impacts of projects on their communities. AB 1073 (Fuentes) allows the Calico Solar Project to circumvent the normal environmental review mandated by CEQA. The Calico Solar Project is a highly controversial 4,600-acre solar project, which is located in the biologically critical and ecologically intact Pisgah Valley in the heart of the California Desert.
