Some California legislators are now quoting a false housing narrative that was created by big money special interests for their self-enrichment
One-size-fits-all statewide legislation has been proposed that imposes the plan of these big money special interests on the whole State of California, often focused on the southern western coast from the Bay Area to the southern border.
The goal appears to give private developers cart blanch “by-right” authority over all California land use, taking that authority away from all cities, counties and citizens.
They are doing it under the cover of a fear-based PR campaign about a “Crisis”. This campaign is characterized by constant use of half-truths and lies.
This campaign has been so successful that its themes are now echoed daily by most legislators in the Sacramento echo chamber and even the Governor and the press echo their rhetoric.
Their rhetoric is very believable to officials because big money special interest backers have formed private “think tanks” to fund and write “studies” to support this campaign. They even associate some these organizations with the names of top universities in order to appear to be part of a real academic institution that we all know and respect.
The special interests are conspiring to achieve their goal incrementally, coordinating and supporting hundreds of land use bills introduced and constantly amended over multiple legislative years.
Much of this legislation appears to actually have been written and “sponsored” by the special interest groups for their economic enrichment – billions of dollars.
Some of the legislators introducing these bills may not knowingly be part of the conspiracy. The tentacles of special interest reach are long and can appear independent.
