Legislators taking on range of issues in newest session

Monday, December 31, 2018

In setting their sights on a new legislative session, local legislators are keeping a focus on a range of issues affecting San Mateo County residents, including the region’s housing shortage, early childhood education, comprehensive tax reform and the impact of Pacific Gas and Electric’s actions.

But even with goals to catalyze affordable housing development, re-evaluate how the state government is funded and increase support for education programs, legislators are also keeping a close eye on Gov.-elect Gavin Newsom’s agenda and an economy expected to take a turn for the worse in the coming years.
