A pair of pedestrians walk along the empty 3rd street face of the Ronald Reagan State Office Building.

Governor Jerry Brown announced today that he intends to scrap his predecessor's plan to sell off 11 California state office buildings, including the Ronald Reagan building and the Junipero Serra building in Downtown.

The plan would have brought the state approximately $1.2 billion in quick one-time revenue, but would have left it paying much more in rent over the long-term.

Now can we get some action on making the two buildings a little more pedestrian friendly?.
