“How could California State Senator Lena Gonzalez’s SB 1410 increase housing resilience?”

 

The dearth of affordable housing in California is causing a housing crisis, forcing marginalized communities to seek shelter in areas of the state more vulnerable to the effects of climate change as well as further away from job centers. One way to counter this would be to simply build more affordable housing. However, many municipalities in the state do not want to host these sites and try to block as much development as possible. But if California Senate Bill SB 1410 from State Senator Lena Gonzalez of Los Angeles becomes law, then projects that have been denied or given unreasonable requirements can be appealed to a newly created Housing Accountability Committee and get the initial rejection overturned. This is How California’s SB 1410 Could Assist With the Development of Housing Resilience in California.
