The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), Climate Resolve, and Environment California, expressed support for Senate Bill 827, leading the way to a solution to help clean up California’s air pollution, meet ambitious climate goals, and end the housing shortage once and for all!
We are very excited to have the support of these leading environmental groups in our efforts to improve the quality of life of Californians, and help make our state affordable and accessible for everyone.
Here’s what these groups had to say in their letter:
“The shortage of affordable housing in California is decades in the making. A failure to maximize transit opportunities, and to allow adequate housing — including affordable housing — near those transportation centers, has contributed to displacement, longer commutes, more vehicle miles traveled, increased greenhouse gas emissions, loss of open space, and worsening urban sprawl. In this context, housing development near public transportation can be a key element in achieving California’s climate goals, by offering more people the opportunity to use transit for their daily trips.
“SB 827 represents the scale of action necessary to meaningfully address the affordable housing and environmental crises.” – Amanda Eaken, Director of Transportation and Climate, Natural Resources Defense Council; Ann Notthoff, Western Advocacy Director, Natural Resources Defense Council; Bryn Lindblad, Associate Director, Climate Resolve; Dan Jacobson, State Director, Environment California
