MORE HOMES ACT OF 2019
SB 50 will help improve the lives and livelihood of Californians of all income levels by offering a bold approach to our housing affordability needs.

SB 50 is a bold approach to create more housing affordability, protect existing affordability and longtime residents, and tackle exclusionary restrictions that have divided us against each other.

SB 50 also includes forward-looking protections for our low-income communities of color, who have historically had few housing options, resulting in segregation and the growth of racially and ethnically concentrated neighborhoods and cities.
SB 50 will increase housing affordability overall, protecting our lowest income residents and most vulnerable community members.
