The 2017 Legislative Session ended on September 15th after a very busy year! APA California tracked over 250 planning-related bills and lobbied on many important bills, including the 15 measures in the Governor’s Housing Package and the “small cells” by right permitting bill. Many of these bills were reviewed in the Legislative Update session at the recent APA California Conference in Sacramento. It’s important to note that many bills that APA California opposed earlier in the year became two-year bills but we expect them to move again next year.
