I don’t think Governor Brown has done much strengthening or weakening the state’s environmental laws or programs. However, he did pushed for a change in CEQA (California Environmental Quality Act), which is similar to NEPA (National Environmental Policy Act). The change is to streamline the environmental review process for large infill development projects, so that affordable housing and urban renewal projects don’t have to undergo long and complicated review process that often lead to the projects never being implemented because of the delay. Another change is to immediately approve the new football stadium in downtown Los Angeles’ environmental impact studies, so implementation can begin soon. I guess in this economic state where there is a dire need for jobs, these changes will help meet this need. Environmental concerns have been placed in the back burner, unfortunately.
