One day after the state Legislature gutted redevelopment, the system received another reprieve.
Gov. Jerry Brown unexpectedly vetoed the state budget Thursday morning, sending lawmakers back to find the billions of dollars needed to plug holes in the state’s books.
The redevelopment package was part of the budget, but passed as separate legislation. Capitol reporters have said that the Legislature has yet to send the redevelopment bills to the governor for his signature, but the leader of the state Senate said he assumed the governor would veto them, too.
