BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - A bill designed to speed up the construction process for housing in Butte County after the Camp Fire passed the Natural Resources Committee unanimously.

Assemblyman James Gallagher said the bill—AB-430—would streamline the environmental review process.

Chico Mayor Randall Stone opposes the bill. Stone said it’s a government overreach into the community.

The bill is now heading to the Assembly Appropriations committee.
