ALAMEDA, Calif. — A California appeals court has denied a bid by redevelopment advocates for a temporary stay to block implementation of a recent court ruling that allows the state to shift more than $2 billion from local redevelopment agencies to help balance the state budget.

The appeals court denied the advocates’ request late Friday, meaning redevelopment agencies were required to make $1.7 billion in payments to their respective county officials Monday. The remaining $350 million is due next year.
