How California’s AB 2895 Would Increase Climate Resilience for Some of Its Most Vulnerable Residents
“How would AB 2895 by California Assemblymember Sharon Quirk-Silva build climate resilience for some of the state’s most vulnerable residents?”
The housing crisis is forcing a wave of Californians out of their homes and into mobile trailers. Things are now getting so bad that mobile park owners are increasing rent and threatening to force people out, leaving them more exposed when disaster strikes. However, AB 2895 by California Assemblymember Sharon Quirk-Silva may have a fix to this. If implemented, AB 2895 would stabilize rent increases on mobile home parks that are at least 15 years old, enabling greater inertia and stability. This would help keep people in homes and less exposed to the elements. This is How California’s AB 2895 Would Increase Climate Resilience for Some of Its Most Vulnerable Residents.
