AB 1000 Fails to Advance in the State Assembly

Today, April 26, AB 1000, authored by Assemblymember Reyes (D-Colton) was defeated! The bill needed five “aye” votes to advance out of California State Assembly Local Government Committee but received only two “aye” votes, one “nay” vote, and five members abstained. This means AB 1000 will not advance this year. Members of the Committee from both parties expressed many concerns about the bill’s impact, including a one-size-fits-all mandate, removing local control, job loss, and harm to the logistics industry. 

The Committee Chair granted reconsideration, making AB 1000 a two-year bill, so it’s likely to resurface while it has been defeated for now. 

This is a tremendous victory for the industry, NAIOP Inland Empire, and the statewide coalition of partners, including California Business Properties (CBPA), California Chamber of Commerce, LiUNA!, NAIOP SoCal, NAIOP San Diego, San Manuel Band of Indians, and more.

AB 1748, authored by Assemblymember Ramos (D-San Bernardino), passed through the Local Government Committee unanimously. This bill would establish a 300-foot setback requirement on warehouse developments or expansions with more than 400,000 sq. ft. of building space adjacent to sensitive receptors unless the local agency adopts alternative policies relating to industrial land use. AB 1748 only applies to Riverside and San Bernardino counties. 

Thank you to all our chapter members, sponsors, and partners for your continued support. We will continue to advocate on behalf of the industry. Stay tuned for what’s to come next – the fight is not over!
