From 2012 to 2020, the Legislature granted the Governor the authority to certify projects that invested over $100 million in the California economy and met high environmental standards. Once certified, these projects received expedited judicial review for any lawsuits filed under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).

On May 20, 2021, the Governor signed SB 7 (Atkins), which authorized a new judicial streamlining program and took effect immediately. OPR is in the process of developing guidance on SB 7. This page will eventually host that new information.
