2006 CEQA Bills

Thinking Forward
Categorized Under: Environment



The Legislature’s 2005-2006 session is now over. Here are the CEQA-related bills that have been either signed into law or vetoed by Governor Schwarzenegger. For more information about any of these bills, please visit the Legislative Counsel’s website at: http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/bilinfo.html.

The rumors of massive changes to CEQA, and the discussions over flood control and CEQA did not result in any legislation that reached the Governor’s desk. Although the Legislature passed more CEQA bills in 2006 than in recent years, they do not seem to have made any significant changes.
