How 2021’s Legislative Session Will Shape California’s Future


california state capitol

The 2021 California state legislative year — the first of a two-year session — has come to an end, allowing us to both reflect on the year in the Capitol and begin to formulate the 2022 housing agenda. The passage of key bills like SB 9, which allows for duplexes and lot splits in single-family residential zones, and SB 10, which enables cities to densify infill, transit-rich and jobs-rich sites, along with historic levels of investment in affordable housing and programs to reduce homelessness, showed that the Legislature was willing to address the state’s housing crisis head on. But what about bills that addressed the pressing issue of development and wildfires, such as SB 12? Or those that sought to extend COVID-19-related tenant protections into next year, as AB 15 intended? Join us for a debrief of the legislative year and a discussion about the key issues and themes we can expect to see our state legislators tackle next year.
