Today, the Local Government subcommittee of the California Senate allowed ACA1 to proceed. ACA1 is a constitutional amendment that reduces the voting threshold for a tax to fund affordable housing from 2/3rds (Impossible in a state with more than 1/3rd the population land owners) to 55%.
Soon, we'll be seeing a bay area regional housing agency form that has the power to levy such a tax in it's district. Mass social housing headed our way, but only if you write your senator with your support too.
Join me on April 9 for a housing lobby day in Sacramento with East Bay for Everyone and let's get this fucker passed.
