A WEEK WITH BIA
MAYORAL HOUSING, TRANSPORTATION & JOBS SUMMIT
BIA-LAV attended the Los Angeles Business Council's Mayoral Housing, Transportation & Jobs VIP Reception and Summit, earlier this week. At the reception BIA-LAV Director of Government Affairs, Diana Coronado, and our members, including Board Member Darrell Simien from Habitat for Humanity, had the opportunity to speak with honoree Senator Nancy Skinner. The Senator authored Senate Bill 330, one of the most significant pieces of housing legislation passed this year. It will streamline building production and reduce the ability for local jurisdictions to downzone or limit housing opportunities.
The Mayoral Housing, Transportation & Jobs Summit hosted several different keynote speakers, panels and featured academic data to discuss the housing crisis and its effect on employment and transportation in Los Angeles. Housing and transportation speakers included, City of Los Angeles Mayor Garcetti, City of Sacramento Mayor Steinberg, LA County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas and City of Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf.
