California Redevelopment Association Sues State for Education Funds

We’ve been reporting that state legislature is working to appropriate local redevelopment agency funds to provide monies for the state’s school system. Now, the California Redevelopment Association – City of Alameda Redevelopment Services Director Leslie Little is a board member – is suing the state to keep the money from going to the schools.

The Sacramento Bee has reported that the redevelopment association has sued to block the state’s appropriation of local redevelopment funds. The appropriation transfers local redevelopment agency funds – generated by local property taxes – to the state for re-distribution back to local school districts.

This suit is a threat to the ability of the state to provide funding to local school districts. Local redevelopment agencies, after all, are created under state law and are thereby “creatures of the state,” so what the state giveth, the state can taketh away. And it’s in the name of the children, so it must be the right thing to do.
