Assemblymember Gloria Comments on Assembly Housing Committee’s Passage of SB 330
Gloria Votes to Support SB 330, Successfully Negotiates Amendments to Address Community Concerns
SACRAMENTO, CA – Today, the California State Assembly’s Housing and Community Development Committee approved Senate Bill 330 (SB 330) known as the Housing Crisis Act of 2019. As a member of the Committee, California State Assemblymember Todd Gloria (D-San Diego) voted to support the bill. Following SB 330’s passage in the Committee, Assemblymember Gloria issued this statement:
“California’s housing crisis is the most pressing issue we face today. It demands innovative and pragmatic solutions in order to build more and ultimately put roofs over the heads of Californians at prices they can afford. Most importantly, these potential solutions must also maintain the integrity of our democracy and respect the will of the voters.
“Through amendments negotiated with the author of SB 330, we have ensured San Diego’s coastal height limit will remain intact. The City Council will no longer have the authority to modify the voter-approved measure. Additionally, a proposed modification of parking requirements in select communities has been removed from the bill.
“With those and other amendments, I voted to support SB 330 in committee today. If passed by the Legislature and signed by the Governor, this bill will provide regulatory certainty and financial stability that should facilitate the construction of more homes for Californians at all income levels.”
SB 330 now advances to the Assembly’s Local Government Committee.
