Submitted By Andrew LaMar
Legislation by Senate Majority Leader Ellen M. Corbett (D-San Leandro) ensuring the state gets the best value for the dollar on land conservation purchases passed the Senate on August 29, 2012 and was sent to Governor Jerry Brown for his consideration.
Senate Bill 1266 establishes requirements for the appraisal of land conservation projects and a process for the state to conduct a comprehensive review and determine the value of a conservation-purchase, as accurately as possible, before moving forward with an acquisition.
