As excerpted from Voice of San Diego:
Assemblyman Todd Gloria hailed the 15 housing bills Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law last week as “a magnificent achievement,” but he warned that it’s “not mission accomplished” when it comes to addressing the state’s housing shortage. Gloria’s remarks came at the beginning of the first meeting of the Assembly’s Select Committee on Housing Affordability for Middle & Working Class, which he chairs.
Gloria, who sat on the board of the San Diego Housing Commission for three years prior to being elected to the City Council in 2008, was appointed in April to head the committee. Its goal, he said Monday, is to identify areas of housing policy where there’s room for improvement, with the focus being on boosting the production of units affordable to middle-income earners.
