Support List for SB 50, the More HOMES Act

Senate Bill 50, the More HOMES Act, legalizes more housing near public transportation and job centers by allowing multi-unit housing (small to mid-size apartment buildings, affordable housing, and condos ) and thus helping California close its 3.5 million home deficit in a way that doesn’t lead to more sprawl and increased carbon emissions. We need more housing, and we need to site that housing sustainably.

SB 50 is supported by a growing coalition of affordable housing, labor, environmental, senior, student, disability rights, and business organizations, as well as by a growing list of local elected officials. SB 50 is co-authored by a diverse and large number of legislators from both the Senate and Assembly, from both political parties, and from regions around the state.
