CLOSING OUT THE 2019 LEGISLATIVE SESSION: NPH PRIORITY BILLS HEAD TO THE GOVERNOR'S DESK!
We are very pleased to share that most of NPH's Priority Bills have advanced through the Legislature and are on their way to the Governor's desk for a final signature! NPH is proud of the “bold, visionary leadership we saw this legislative session, as lawmakers stepped up with housing solutions in response to our state's communities in need,” NPH Executive Director Amie Fishman shared with press in a statement at the close of session last week.
Together, this package of affordable housing bills advances a clear pathway to strong, healthy, affordable communities around the Bay Area and California. It embraces the three-pronged approach to housing solutions: production, preservation, and tenant protections.
All of these legislative wins are a clear indicator that our affordable housing movement has the momentum to see even more success in 2020 and beyond. Thank you to all the affordable housing legislative champions who helped pass these critical bills. We look forward to working alongside you again next year!
In addition to NPH's Priority Bills, we're pleased to share that the "3Ps" legislative campaign also saw great success.
NPH was proud to play a leadership role in the “3Ps” legislative campaign and coalition, which aims to move forward the 3-pronged approach to housing solutions: production, preservation, and tenant protections. The "3Ps" bills that won in the legislature this year included AB 68, AB 881, AB 1482, AB 1483, AB 1485, AB 1486, AB 1487, SB 6, SB 18, and SB 330. We are poised for future legislative wins in 2020, including SB 50. The "3Ps" campaign is a diverse coalition of business and community leaders and affordable housing and tenants' rights organizations who see the need for a holistic approach to housing solutions.
