Bill that would allow cities to mandate more low-income rental housing clears Assembly

A measure that would allow local governments to force developers to include more low-income housing within their projects passed the Assembly Thursday.

Assemblyman Richard Bloom (D-Santa Monica), the bill’s author, said his legislation would provide more low-income housing at a time when soaring costs have led to a statewide crisis.

“Given our state‚Äôs severe housing crisis it is critical we give our local governments every possibly tool to address affordable housing needs,” Bloom said.
