Two trailer bills that are part of the recently passed California state budget have caused major building projects in Galt to come to an abrupt halt and have left city officials without a definitive plan on how to move forward.

The trailer bills — ABX1 26 and ABX1 27 — place strict regulations on redevelopment agencies throughout the state, from suspending and prohibiting any further agency activity to requiring cities to individually pay the state a specified amount of money to keep their redevelopment agencies open — something Galt city officials are concerned may not even be legal.

    Let the Galt redevelopment and local developers pay their own way. With more budget cuts to come, even this year if the deficit exceeds a million or two, redevelopment and enterprise zones are all but dead issues. Both only benefit the corporations, city coffers and restrict the earnings of workers to line the pockets of business owners with as much as a $37,000 tax credit for every minimum wage job they create. Off with the heads of these two ugly schemes!
