In 1971, the California legislature passed Assembly Bill 1301, which added and amended to the current California land use planning procedures. This Comment focuses on section 12 of Assembly Bill 1301. This Comment attempts to discover a definition for the phrase ?consistent with the general plan? found in section 12, and to determine whether cities and counties will be subject to inverse condemnation suits for private lands planned for public use or decreased in value. This Comment concludes by discouraging the passage of Assembly Bill 1301 because it may undermine the purpose and function of a general plan.
