Thanks to your help, SB 767 has passed out of all Senate Committees, including Senate Natural Resources and Water (NRW), Senate Governmental Organization (GO), and yesterday, Senate Appropriations. Now the bill will go for a floor vote to hopefully pass out of the Senate before the end of May.
If SB 767 passes out of the Senate, next steps will be in the Assembly. We will provide more information in early June.
Thank you for all of your continued help to Save Tesla Park!
SB 767 (Glazer) will change state law to allow the State Parks Department to dispose of the 3,100 acre Alameda-Tesla Expansion Area (also known locally as “Tesla Park”) in order to permanently preserve the land if it is determined by the Department to be in the public interest. Proceeds from any such sale would be returned to the OHMVR Division.
SB 767 is similar to the last year’s bill that did not pass. It allows the Department make a determination that it is in the public interest to dispose of the Alameda-Tesla Expansion Area.
