Jerry Brown once called reforming CEQA, California's 43-year-old landmark environmental impact law, "doing the Lord's work." Well, if that's the case, looks like we're in the day-of-rest period...
Gov. Jerry Brown said Tuesday it's unlikely that changes he's seeking to the state's environmental protection law can be accomplished this year, although a top Senate Democrat said he's still pursuing reforms.
Brown told California reporters traveling with him in China that interest in changing the California Environmental Quality Act is stronger among groups outside the state Capitol than among Democratic lawmakers, who control the Legislature.
"This is not something you get done in a year, but I believe before I depart this stage we will see reform in CEQA," he told reporters.
