HCD Alert!

Tuesday, October 11th, 2011 | Enterprise Zones, Legislation, Tax News

Today the HCD issued this press release regarding implementation of new policies, including a moratorium on new zones.  The stated aim of the new policy memorandum is to make the EZ more accountable, efficient and consistent with the Governor’s May budget revise, i.e. a push by the unions to undercut the EZ program from within.  The legal analysis is beginning on the HCD’s claim that the law allows for “up to” 42 zones which if read in the correct light, means phasing out the program.   Read the memo here.

Them Changes – Frank Luera Calling it Quits from HCD

Monday, June 22nd, 2009 | Tax News

As he put in the subject line of his email “Them Changes” are happening at HCD. Frank Luera, head of California’s Economic Development Section in charge of the Enterprise Zone program recently announced that he is retiring from the HCD. Few individuals have been more involved or more instrumental in the Enterprise Zone program. Frank worked tirelessly to advance the Enterprise Zone program. I even recall getting email responses from him late and night and on weekends. How many government officials can you say that about!

Frank did not let on regarding what his future holds, but left his options open. His last day with HCD will this Friday, June 19. At C&I, we want to thank Frank for all of his insight and hard work and wish him well wherever he may end up.
