The Latest from the Local Government Commission
Statement from LGC Executive Director Kate Wright on Governor Newsom’s signing of three key housing bills.
“California continues to face a dramatic shortage of housing, especially affordable housing, and the median price of a home has climbed over $800,000. By signing SB 8 Skinner, SB 9 Atkins, and SB 10 Wiener, Governor Newsom has taken three significant steps toward streamlining the production of housing, increasing the supply of housing, and creating more housing affordable to more Californians. In addition, by promoting housing on a more compact basis, these bills will support the development of more sustainable and livable communities. This trio of legislation represents the proverbial win, win, win — a win for more housing, a win for sustainable communities, and a win for greater equity in our state.”
