AB 2954: Child Care in the General Plan (2002)


AB 2954 (2002) was designed to address the shortage in affordable child care that has plagued the State (and the South Bay and Midpeninsula in particular) for the past several years. It would have required that the Land Use Element of a city or county’s General Plan address the need for child care. The bill would have applied only to newly adopted General Plans.  It was vetoed by the Governor
