This legislative session, the Legislature approved a number of housing bills that would help address the Valley and California's housing crisis. VICA urges Governor Newsom to
the following bills into law:
AB 1560 (Friedman) - Major Transit Stop
A VICA-sponsored bill that will allow more housing construction along high-quality transit corridors, such as
Metro's Orange Line.
AB 68 (Ting) - Accessory Dwelling Units
Allows the development more accessory dwelling unit (ADU) construction.
AB 1197 (Santiago) - Supportive Housing and Emergency Shelters
Exempts supportive housing and emergency shelters from CEQA requirements.
SB 5 (Beall) - Affordable Housing and Community Development Investment Program
Leverages property tax revenue to fund affordable housing.
SB 330 (Skinner) - Housing Crisis Act of 2019
Streamlines the permitting process for housing projects for the next 5 years.
VICA urges Governor Newsom to veto AB 1482 (Ting), a rent cap bill that will depress the availability and development of rental housing stock in California. Instead of solving the housing shortage, this bill will exacerbate it. That is why we must voice our concerns.
