The next battle over Monterey County land use
By Ben Adler
San Francisco, CA – Today brings the next round in the fight over land use in Monterey County - and the battleground this time is the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. The court is considering a case under the federal Voting Rights Act that Monterey County officials have cited to kick the slow-growth General Plan Initiative off the June primary ballot. As KAZU's Ben Adler reports, the court's ruling could change the face of the initiative process across California.
