Housing bills on life support 

Hey Friend,

For just a few minutes of your time,

help these pro-housing bills!

 

We need serious help from you. With the deadline to pass state legislation fast approaching, the window for action and change is narrowing. A few pro-housing bills, namely SB 9 (allows duplexes on single family lots), SB 10 (streamlines rezoning for small apartments), and SB 478 (eliminates loopholes to not build small apartments) are experiencing fierce NIMBY pushback, and we need all hands on deck to pass them into the law. Supporting these bills means supporting middle housing for middle-income families!

Tell to your Assemblymember to vote YES on middle housing!

 

SB 679, which establishes a streamlined affordable housing solution authority for LA County (LACAHSA), is in need of serious help as well. Here is the TL;DR: it’s still in the Assembly, and we need your efforts this week to keep it moving before the legislature is off for the summer. Speaker Anthony Rendon has the power to push this bill forward, and we are going to call his office every day until he takes action. Use the tool below to call his office directly, and let him know that you support SB 679.

☎️ Call Speaker Rendon

 

Lastly, have you signed onto our housing element advocacy letter to state legislators and city councils across LA County? The City of LA has demonstrated how an honest & realistic site inventory analysis is done, so let’s seize this teaching moment and urge other cities to follow LA’s lead!

Tell other cities: learn from LA!

 

Thank you for taking actions!

Here is a little pick-me-up for the hump day…

more affordable housing everywhere!
