Registration Closes:
Join the ACBA Environmental Section with the Business and Trial Practice Sections in a panelist discussion with experts on where California's Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) is going and where it should go. Learn about some of the top CEQA decisions of the past year and cases pending before the California Supreme Court, CEQA reform proposals, and the most recent revisions to CEQA, including new streamlining tools for infill development under Senate Bill (SB) 226, and how they compare to the CEQA provisions in SB 375. Also reviewed will be California's climate and water supply analysis under CEQA and its interaction with the federal Endangered Species Act, focusing on Preserve Wild Santee and Smart Rail . (And no, this is not a mini-repeat of the CEQA presentations at the State Bar's Environmental Yosemite Conference!)
