VICTORY: SCAG PASSES VOTE ON EXTENDING REVIEW ON THE REGIONAL RTP/SCS PLAN
We are pleased to announce a major victory.

At the urging of BIASC, our partners in the business community, and residents from throughout the region, the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) has agreed to delay their vote on the final Connect SoCal plan.

As we’ve shared with you over the last several weeks, in its current form, this important region-wide plan posed a significant threat to the homebuilding industry and the overall economy.

Thanks to our collective efforts, SCAG has agreed to delay its vote on the final Connect SoCal plan by 120 days.

A special THANK YOU to those of you who participated in our digital advocacy campaign. Your efforts helped generate thousands of emails to our elected representatives, asking for their support in delaying this critical vote. You spoke, and they listened!

The battle is not over. BIASC will continue to work with our coalition partners and SCAG’s leadership to ensure that the final Connect SoCal plan supports new home construction and strengthens the economy.

Please take the time to send a short, customized email to your SCAG representatives thanking them for their support.
