Assemblymember Gloria's Comments from the Assembly Floor on AB 1505

Thursday, May 4, 2017

SACRAMENTO, CA – Assemblymember Todd Gloria (D-San Diego) authored Assembly Bill 1505, a measure that restores the long-standing authority of local municipalities to require the inclusion of affordable rental units as part of local inclusionary housing policies, to make sure local governments are able to expand the affordable housing supply. “Inclusionary zoning is a vital tool which has given local governments an ability to work with developers to create more affordable housing units,” said Assemblymember Gloria. “While local governments can already mandate inclusionary policies on for-sale projects, this bill will ensure rental housing is not treated differently.” Here’s more in this Assembly Access video.
