Legislative Session Off to Busy Start

Jacqueline Woo, Senior Associate

California’s 2023-24 legislative session is already underway, with numerous housing bills among the first bills to be introduced in early December.

These include:

  • ACA 1 (Aguiar-Curry)—would change the Voter Threshold for Housing to 55% and make a number of revisions to current vote requirements for schools.
  • SB 4 (Weiner)—would streamline the development of affordable housing on land owned by faith-based institutions and community colleges.
  • SB 20 (Rubio)— would enable two or more cities to establish a joint powers authority to raise funding for affordable housing.
  • AB 11 (Jackson)—would create a new 11-member Affordable California Commission to study affordable housing and develop solutions for making housing more affordable.

We expect that dozens of additional bills will be introduced prior to the February 17th bill introduction deadline.
