AB 26x eliminates the redevelopment agency of any city/county that doesn't make the above payments to schools/special districts. The bill establishes successor agencies charged with winding down these redevelopment agencies' operations, paying its debts, etc. For those redevelopment agencies' that are eliminated, housing obligations and duties would transfer to the city or county, housing authority, or the state Department of Housing and Community Development.
AB 27x requires cities and counties with redevelopment agencies to make $1.7 billion in payments to local schools in fiscal year 2011-12. The funds can come from any city/county source, including redevelopment. If necessary, each redevelopment agency can suspend all or a portion of its 2011-12 redevelopment funds designated for housing in order to repay the city or county.
For fiscal year 2012-13 and beyond, cities/counties must make $400 million in payments to schools and special districts. The money can come from any city/county source, including redevelopment; however, it cannot come from the portion of redevelopment funds designated for housing.
Senator Mark DeSaulnier (D-Concord) and Assemblymembers Toni Atkins (D-San Diego) and Roger Dickinson (D-Sacramento) doggedly pursued amendments to protect redevelopment's housing funds, amendments that were sought by Housing California, California Rural Legal Assistance Foundation, and Western Center on Law and Poverty. Their dedication secured the commitments outlined from legislative leadership.
