Sacramento – The Controversial housing bill, SB 9 that would eliminate single family zoning has passed the Assembly on a bipartisan vote of 45-19.
“This bill is about opening the door for more families to pursue their version of the California Dream—whether that means building a home for an elderly parent to live in, creating a new source of income, buying that first house, or being welcomed into a new neighborhood. It’s about giving parents the chance to pass on wealth to their children and giving neighbors the chance to make our communities more inclusive,” Senator Atkins said in a statement released this morning.
” In short, this bill is about opportunity, and I’m grateful the Assembly has given it the opportunity to move forward today,” she added. “SB 9 is the product of multiple years of collaboration and hard work. Today’s success was possible in large part due to the partnership and leadership of Speaker Anthony Rendon.”
The Bill passed the Senate on a 28-6 vote in May.
