A Giant Leap Toward More Affordable Housing 

“This is a game changer for affordable housing in California”

SACRAMENTO – Today, California YIMBY released the following statement about the passage of AB 2011 in the Senate Appropriations Committee:

“AB 2011 is one of the most significant housing bills of this legislative session, and could unlock the potential for more than 2 million homes across our state,” said Brian Hanlon, CEO of California YIMBY. “California has a huge amount of under-utilized and abandoned commercial properties that could see rapid development of subsidized affordable housing under this legislation – and would include good jobs with fair wages for construction workers. This is a game changer for housing in our state, and we applaud Asm. Buffy Wicks for her leadership.
