California agency grants Redondo Beach $4.8 million to help buy portion of AES power plant, which would become parkland

Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi (D-South Bay) and state Sen. Ben Allen (D-West Los Angeles/South Bay) helped ensure language made it into Prop. 68 that allows money to go toward buying land on which decommissioned power plants sit, the assemblyman said.

“We worked with Mayor Brand to make sure the language was in there specifically for this purpose,” Muratsuchi said.
