LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 936, Hueso. Redevelopment: debt forgiveness.
The Community Redevelopment Law authorizes the establishment of redevelopment agencies in communities to address the effects of blight, as defined. Existing law requires the agencies, among other things, to comply with public hearing and notice requirements relating to, among other things, the adoption and amendment of redevelopment plans, the expenditure of funds, and the financing of projects.
This bill would require an agency or public body to adopt a resolution stating its intention to forgive the repayment of a loan, advance, or indebtedness owed by a public body to the agency or an agency to the public body prior to repayment forgiveness, as specified. The bill would also require the agency or public body, on or before February 1, 2012, to adopt a resolution declaring whether it has forgiven the repayment of a loan, advance, or indebtedness owed by a public body or an agency to the public body during a specified period.
