CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2011–2012 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 1555


Introduced  by  Assembly Member Norby

January 26, 2012


An act to add Section 34181.5 to the Health and Safety Code, relating to redevelopment.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1555, as amended, Norby. Redevelopment: debt forgiveness agreements.
Existing law dissolved redevelopment agencies and community development agencies, as of February 1, 2012, and provides for the designation of successor agencies, as defined. Existing law imposes various requirements on successor agencies and subjects successor agency actions to the review of oversight boards. Existing law requires each oversight board to direct the successor agency to, among other things, cease performance in connection with and terminate all existing agreements that do not qualify as enforceable obligations, as defined.
This bill would, in directing the successor agency to take a specified action, prohibit the oversight board from requiring the successor agency to take any action that results in the forgiveness, wholly or partially, of a loan, advance, or indebtedness that is owed by a public body private entity to the dissolved redevelopment agency. The bill would authorize the oversight board, consistent with a specified provision of law, to set aside any agreements relating to the forgiveness of indebtedness, loans, or advances owed by a private entity to the dissolved redevelopment agency dating back to January 1, 2011.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 34181.5 is added to the Health and Safety Code, to read:

(b) The oversight board may, consistent with subdivision (b) of Section 34181, set aside any agreements relating to the forgiveness of indebtedness, loans, or advances owed by a private entity to the dissolved redevelopment agency dating back to January 1, 2011.
