(Before It's News)


California is quickly becoming the leader in American cronyism. It’s basically a 1 party state and cronies love 1 party states. Just look at China.

(From The National Review)

After years of abuse, California dissolved its infamous redevelopment agencies (RDAs) in 2012. This reprieve for property rights, however, was short-lived. Last year, lawmakers decided to revive redevelopment under a new program, allowing municipalities to establish “community revitalization and investment authorities,” or CRIAs. Like the redevelopment agencies from before, CRIAs can siphon property-tax revenue away from infrastructure projects and instead funnel those funds to their own schemes. Appallingly, California law also grants these authorities the power of eminent domain to seize private property.

In August, state lawmakers approved a bill, AB 2492, that would make it even easier to create a CRIA. The consequences could be absolutely dire. One analysis by Andrew Chang and Company estimates that if the bill is enacted, a staggering 78 percent of California’s landmass could be threatened with condemnation, including 23 entire counties and 188 cities in whole. To put that figure into perspective, if that combined area were a state, it would constitute the seventh largest state in the U.S.
