On The Issues

  • California Homes for All

    1. $100 billion California Housing Emergency Fund.

    As State Senator, I would call for taxes on the wealthiest corporations and billionaires in the state to raise $100 billion of tax revenue over ten years for a California Housing Emergency Fund. This fund will allow us to build for need, not for profit by:

    Removing at least 200,000 existing units from the speculative market and stabilizing their affordability at no-to-low income levels through acquisitions over ten years.

    Building at least 100,000 new publicly- or non-profit-owned deeply affordable green homes over ten years, including mixed income social housing. Development would be targeted in cities and regions most acutely facing the affordable housing crisis evidenced by high levels of homelessness, and prioritize building along public transit lines and walkable places. New units would be equipped to rely on electricity generated from renewable energy sources.

    Rehabilitating existing publicly owned housing, including energy efficiency and renewable electricity upgrades.

    2. Universal rent control and tenant protections.

    California needs to end its vicious cycle of evictions and speculation for profit. This entails:

    ✔ Allowing local cities to protect their residents from price gouging and displacement by repealing the Costa-Hawkins and Ellis Acts.

    ✔ Expanding San Francisco’s Right to Counsel to the state level, providing a universal right to legal counsel for anyone facing eviction.

    ✔ Establishing a rental registry and landlord licensing structure to promote a fair, competitive housing market and expand regulations on predatory bad actors.

    3. Alleviate displacement and gentrification.

    ✔ Funding for autonomous community planning to empower low-income communities to create land use plans that address the need for affordable green homes and healthy neighborhoods.

    ✔ Introducing an Anti-Displacement Act to require local planning processes to evaluate projected socioeconomic impacts resulting from housing developments in vulnerable frontline communities, including preference in new housing developments for anyone displaced under the Ellis Act and Owner Move-In’s in that same area.

    Legalizing new public housing by repealing Article 34 of the California Constitution.

    4. Greenline Zoning.

    ✔ Incentivize or require the wealthiest neighborhoods and regions in California to create more housing at all levels of affordability, to redress the historic impact of exclusionary housing policies.

    Require balanced development of housing commensurate with job growth that corresponds to wages of local workers.

    Prioritize 100% affordable housing development on publicly owned surplus lands.
