The author of this blog site is Kevin Daehnke, the creator of the SB 989 “Bona Fide Ground Tenant” concept, which started in California. Mr. Daehnke and his law firm, Daehnke Cruz Law Group, LLP, were responsible for creating the SB 989 idea, drafting the legislation and (with the help of many good friends) shepherding the SB 989 bill through the California legislative process. Mr. Daehnke is a 27-year environmental law lawyer, with a “contaminated properties” focus. He cut his teeth at large law firms prior to starting Daehnke Cruz Law Group, seventeen years ago. His practice has naturally evolved over the years to a “Brownfields” specialty, focusing on revitalizing and reusing contaminated sites. Mr. Daehnke is a frequent author and lecturer on cutting edge Brownfields issues. A copy of Mr. Daehnke’s bio can be found at www.Daehnkecruz.com, and is also attached below.
