AB 106 Amended to Allow Vouchering Through 2014

AB 106 was amended last night to now allow local jurisdictions to continue receiving and processing voucher applications for the Enterprise Zone program through the end of 2014.

Not wanting to miss an opportunity to create confusion where such could easily have been avoided, the bill writers have allowed that the jurisdictions, “may continue to accept applications for the certification and to issue the certifications up to but no later than January 1, 2015.” As opposed to allowing the submissions of voucher applications to be received up to but no later than January 1, 2015 and then allowing the zones whatever time they needed to process the applications, this bill simply delays the uncertainty currently permeating the vouchering system. Of course, it’s much better than nothing, but why make things so much more complicated than they have to be?
