David’s leadership as the Chair of the Assembly Housing & Community Development Committee is delivering the results San Francisco needs to address the housing crisis.
In the 2017 legislative session he successfully championed the passage of a historic package to address the housing crisis by creating a permanent source of affordable housing funding, holding cities accountable to build housing, and streamlining the process
Highlights of this historic package include:
- A $3 billion general obligation bond for existing affordable housing programs, including multifamily rental and homeownership.
- A streamlined housing production process in cities that have failed to meet their affordable housing goals
- Incentives for local cities to build housing near public transit in order to cut down on congestion and air pollution
There’s still a lot more work to do if we’re serious about making housing more affordable for future generations. In the 2018 legislative session I’m fighting to provide new funding and solutions for homelessness and expand tenant protections for all.
