California YIMBY Statement on Senate Pro-Tem Housing Package

May 20, 2020

Sacramento, CA — California YIMBY today released the following statement from President/CEO Brian Hanlon:

“The Senate housing production bill package is a step forward in addressing California’s housing shortage. We hope Senate leadership works with their counterparts in the Assembly to complete the package and deliver meaningful relief to Californians struggling with high housing costs. Today, the Assembly Housing and Community Development Committee will hear AB 3155 — a critical bill by Asm. Rob Rivas that will speed the construction of more naturally-affordable homes in urban areas, creating housing where it’s most needed and helping create jobs for California’s construction workers. Passage of AB 3155 is critical if the goals envisioned in the Pro Tem’s bills are to become reality.”
