California’s Lieutenant Governor, Controller, Treasurer, and Insurance Commissioner Endorse SB 50, the More HOMES Act
Growing Chorus of Leaders Call for State to Act on Comprehensive Housing Reform
Sacramento, CA – Today, California’s Lieutenant Governor Eleni Kounalakis, Controller Betty Yee, Treasurer Fiona Ma, and Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara announced their support for California State Senator Scott Wiener’s SB 50, the More HOMES Act, which will allow cities to build urgently-needed housing near public transit and job centers. The bill ends apartment bans in cities across the state and legalizes multi-family homes like fourplexes. It also includes aggressive protections for renters, plus requirements that developers include affordable housing in their projects.
