It's official. Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation that puts an end to the state's ham-fisted, eminent-domain-abusing, corporate-welfare-dispensing redevelopment agencies. Here is my City Journal piece discussing these agencies and detailing their reign of terror. He also signed a bill that provides a way for them to voluntarily come back to life, although the price would be too high for most cities. Who would have thought that Democrats would lead the way in killing these agencies and Republicans would have fought to save them? Who would have thought I would have good news to share from Sacramento?
