Berman Responds to Assembly Passage of Housing Package

Friday, September 15, 2017

SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Marc Berman (D-Palo Alto) released the following statement in response to the passage of legislation in the California State Assembly aimed at tackling California’s housing crisis. 

California is in the depth of a housing crisis that’s impacting our friends, our neighborhoods, and our families. Housing costs are astronomical in the 24th Assembly District. Homes in once middle-class neighborhoods now sell for millions of dollars, and limited supply keep costs rising. There simply aren’t enough homes to meet demand, and it’s tearing apart the socio-economic diversity of our communities. To the commuters who desire to live in the communities they work in, to the young professionals who aspire to be homeowners, and to the parents working hard to keep a roof over their families’ heads - this package of bills is a down payment on addressing the housing crisis plaguing our state.
