Assembly Unanimously Approves CSDA Sponsored Legislation
The California State Assembly passed CSDA sponsored legislation, AB 979 (Lackey), last week on a unanimous bipartisan vote. Assembly Member Tom Lackey (R – Palmdale), the author of the bill, praised the legislation as streamlining the representation process while “maintaining local flexibility for special districts to determine the best course of action for their constituents and their community”.
AB 979 streamlines the process to obtain special district representation on local agency formation commissions. The bill now passes to the State Senate for referral to a committee.
