This bill would exempt from California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) the acquisition, sale, or other transfer of property by a public agency for certain purposes, or the funding of that acquisition, sale, or other transfer by a public agency, if the public agency conditions those transactions on compliance with CEQA before making physical changes to the transferred property.

Position Statement

CEQA provides a process for evaluating the environmental effects of applicable projects. There is a need to strengthen and clarify the existing regulation that a public agency can fund and acquire property to preserve open space, habitat, or historical resources without first going through a CEQA analysis.
