Sacramento Court Ruling on School Funds Lawsuit Expected Tomorrow

A ruling from the Superior Court for Sacramento County is expected tomorrow in the case of California Redevelopment Association et al. v. Genest et al., Case No. 34-2009-80000359-CU-WM-GDS (CRA v. Genest). The California Redevelopment Association, a Sacramento-based developer lobby group, had sued the State of California to prevent the State from re-allocating over $2 billion state-wide of local developer subsidies to K-12 education.

In 2009, the California Redevelopment Association (CRA) filed a lawsuit against the State Department of Finance over Assembly Bill ABX4-26, which would allow the State to re-direct developer-subsidy funds to California’s K-12 school system. The CRA says that the re-allocation is contrary to the State Constitution. Action Alameda News has previously reported on the lawsuit.

In Alameda, “redevelopment” manifests as the Community Improvement Commission of the City of Alameda. Last year, over $15 million of local property taxes were diverted to the redevelopment agency. In Alameda County, redevelopment agencies take 13 cents of every property tax dollar.

The Action Alameda News video below explains how redevelopment relates to local school funding.
