Assemblymember Gloria’s Statement on Governor’s Signing of Housing Legislative Package
SAN DIEGO, CA – Today, California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law a package of legislation aimed at tackling California’s housing crisis. Following this historic event, California State Assemblymember Todd Gloria (D-San Diego) issued this statement:
“Skyrocketing housing costs have squeezed California’s working and middle-class for too long. I am proud to join the Governor and my fellow legislators to pass a historic package of bills that makes specific and tangible progress to give some relief to those struggling to pay their rents and mortgages.
“We have more work to do on housing affordability and I look forward to building on this year’s achievements in the months ahead. Our goal must remain the same: a roof over the head of every Californian at a price they can afford.”
Among the bills signed by the Governor today are SB 2 (Atkins), SB 3 (Beall), SB 35 (Wiener) and AB 1505 (Bloom/Chiu/Gloria). Assemblymember Gloria co-authored SB 2, SB 3, and SB 35 and was a joint author of AB 1505.
In addition, Assemblymember Gloria authored two other pieces of housing legislation to help address the persistent housing crisis – specifically, AB 1193 and AB 1637. These are currently on the Governor’s desk for consideration.
