New Legislation Enhances Flexibility in Mitigation Banking – SB 1646 Overview


In an exciting development for the world of environmental conservation and restoration, a significant mitigation banking bill was filed on January 5, 2024. This new legislation is poised to transform the current landscape of mitigation banking, particularly concerning the use of out-of-basin mitigation credits.

At its core, the bill focuses on providing more flexibility in the use of mitigation credits, especially when in-basin options are unavailable. This new provision is a game-changer for projects facing limitations due to the lack of available mitigation credits within their specific basin.

This bill represents a pivotal shift in how we approach environmental restoration projects. It opens up new avenues for conservation efforts, allowing for greater adaptability and resourcefulness in addressing environmental impacts.

The bill’s allowance for out-of-basin mitigation credits means that projects no longer have to be stalled or compromised due to credit availability. This flexibility can lead to more efficient and effective environmental restoration efforts, as projects can now tap into a broader range of resources to offset their ecological impact.
