The Senate approved AB 2031 (Bonta and Atkins), legislation that would authorize local jurisdictions to issue affordable housing bonds against the revenue stream of “boomerang funds,” the “net available revenues” received by cities and counties after the dissolution of redevelopment. The bill does not redirect property taxes from any other taxing entity and has no impact to the State’s general fund. NPH and the City of Oakland are cosponsors of the legislation. AB 2031 will now head back to the Assembly for a vote of concurrence in the amendments taken in the Senate and then be sent to Governor Brown’s desk for his signature.
