Former Redevelopment Agency

On February 1, 2012 all Redevelopment Agencies within the State of California were dissolved. Below is an overview of ABx1 26, the Assembly Bill that dissolved Redevelopment Agencies (RDA’s) and provides for the wind-down of redevelopment activities.

In his 2011-12 fiscal year budget, California Governor Jerry Brown proposed eliminating the state’s RDAs to help address the state’s ongoing budget deficit. In June 2011, the Legislature passed, and the Governor signed, two bills in response to his proposal:

1. ABx1 26 prevented RDAs from engaging in new activities and dissolved the agencies effective October 1, 2011. This legislation also outlined the process for winding-down the RDAs’ financial affairs, and set forth a mechanism to distribute any net funds from the RDAs to other local taxing agencies.

2. ABx1 27 would have allowed RDAs to opt-in to an alternative redevelopment program to avoid dissolution. The agencies would have had to agree to transfer annual payments to school and community college districts to continue their functions.

The California Redevelopment Association, the League of California Cities and other parties filed petitions with the Supreme Court challenging both ABx1 26 and ABx1 27 on constitutional grounds. The Supreme Court imposed a partial stay on the implementation of the two pieces of legislation and reviewed the issues on an expedited basis.

On December 29, 2011, the California Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of ABx1 26 and struck down ABx1 27 as unconstitutional. It also extended some of the deadlines and dates stipulated in ABx1 26 by four months because of the delay caused by the litigation. As a result of the Supreme Court’s decision in California Redevelopment Association versus Matosantos, California’s approximately 400 RDAs were dissolved on February 1, 2012. The assets and liabilities (excluding housing assets) of RDAs have now been transferred to Successor Agencies pursuant to ABx1 26. A separate Successor Housing Agency manages the RDA’s housing assets.
