Brown vetoed Assembly Bill 1091 on Monday, a bill that would have made it a crime to “willfully release” balloons made of Mylar or another “electrically conductive material.” A legislative analysis of the bill offered statistics from utility companies showing how often in recent years Mylar balloons have resulted in power outages or surges. The metallic finish on the balloons can conduct electricity. Last month, a balloon briefly knocked out power to 2,800 utility customers in Huntington Beach.
It might sound strange that one of the main impediments to bike lanes in California is a state environmental law, but it’s true. The California Environmental Quality Act requires new projects to take into account the effects on car congestion, and doing so has stymied bike lanes up and down the state for more than a decade. Gov. Jerry Brown on Monday signed legislation allowing cities to continue sidestepping provisions of CEQA when planning for new bike lanes or painting them on roads. But the measure, Assembly Bill 1218 from Assemblyman Jay Obernolte (R-Big Bear Lake), doesn’t do much to address the problem.
