Chris Carr’s new study “The CEQA Gauntlet” was featured and quoted in the Bloomberg piece “Berkeley Housing Battle Revives Debate Over Environmental Law”. Carr discusses the problems CEQA poses today with Bloomberg.
“You can be sure the authors of CEQA didn’t think about the Boschian hellscape we have today,” said Carr. “But each year, there are new statutory sections or case law, which build up the body of the CEQA regime. It’s proliferated so much that California’s leading policy priorities are frustrated, complicated, slowed and sometimes entirely thwarted by CEQA. We’re in a situation where California is at war with itself.”
