EDITORIAL: THIS IS THE YEAR FOR CEQA REFORM

The Sun – published in San Bernardino and The Inland Empire – has published an editorial calling for reform of the California Environmental Quality Act, better known as CEQA.  We agree.  Here’s a bit from the editorial:

He noted, as many have, that it’s hard to think of a CEQA exemption in recent years – including the wholesale one for a proposed football stadium in downtown Los Angeles – that hasn’t been necessary if anything is to get done. When regular exemptions are the correct political stance to apply a law, something is wrong.”
