In 2019, Senate Bill 50 — the major legislative effort that would eliminate restrictive zoning along major transit lines and job centers, thus paving the way for denser, more transit-friendly housing development across the state — became stymied in Sacramento before a vote could occur. With the concerns surrounding California’s housing crisis as pertinent as ever, the bill returned to the state legislature this January, only to be defeated. Join us to hear more about the bill’s difficult path and get an update on its current status.
