Every Californian Deserves a Safe, Affordable Home

Monday, August 28, 2017

(Sacramento) – Assemblymember David Chiu (D-San Francisco), other legislators and labor leaders are working together to solve California’s affordable housing crisis. “The affordable housing crisis threatens our state’s economic prosperity and deepens inequality,” said Assemblymember Chiu, Chair of the Assembly Housing and Community Development Committee at a press conference by the Building Trades announcing their support for his legislation. “There is no single solution to resolve the crisis but my Assembly Bill 73 is one of the ways to create more affordable housing.” AB 73 will increase the production of market rate and affordable housing by providing local governments with financial incentives for creating "Housing Sustainability Districts" - overlay districts to streamline the residential and development process in areas with existing infrastructure transit.
