Stimuli Breakfast: California Housing Legislation - Tackling Unprecedented Housing Crisis

Amidst the state’s on-going housing crisis – extremely low affordability, untenably high rent-burden, and startling homelessness – Governor Newsom last month signed a series of housing bills into law effective January 1, 2020. Among them are: SB 330, the Housing Crisis Act of 2019, which aims to accelerate housing production by limiting local approval processes and fees. AB 68, AB 881 which aim to streamline approval and construction of accessory dwelling units. AB 1482 which sets a statewide annual rent cap on properties that are older than 15 years and not subject to local rent control. AB 1197, applicable specifically to Los Angeles, which exempts certain homeless shelters and supportive housing projects from environmental review. Underlying these legislations is the challenge to balance state mandate and local control of housing policy, and to address the needs of disparate stakeholders. What is the potential impact of these legislations? Will they be effective in facilitating meaningful progress? What are some potential unintended consequences? These are some of the topics our esteemed panel of public and private sector leaders will delve into. You are invited to join us for an insightful discussion on this critically important issue for our state and our region.
