[4. PRESENTATION - General State and Federal Legislative Update - Townsend Public Affairs]

THEN ITEM NUMBER FOUR,

[00:10:01]

OUR PRESENTATION, UH, GENERAL STATE AND FEDERAL LEGISLATIVE UPDATE FROM TOWNS IN PUBLIC AFFAIRS.

AND FOR THE NEXT PRESENTATION, I'D LIKE TO INTRODUCE ERIC O'DONNELL WITH TOWNS IN PUBLIC AFFAIRS.

HE'S THEIR SENIOR ASSOCIATE WHO WORKS WITH US.

HE'S ON THE CALL TONIGHT.

SO THANK YOU, ERIC, FOR JOINING US, UH, BETTER UP ERIC.

MY PLEASURE.

HI.

CAN EVERYONE HEAR ME OKAY? YES.

YES, YES.

PERFECT.

ALL RIGHT.

GOOD EVENING.

MAYOR MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL, ERICA DONNA WITH TOWNSEND PUBLIC AFFAIRS TONIGHT, I'M HERE TO GIVE YOU A BRIEF LEGISLATIVE UPDATE AT THE STATE AND FEDERAL LEVEL ABOUT WHAT WE'RE WORKING ON AND WHAT TO EXPECT IN 21.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

QUICK AGENDA.

WE'RE GOING TO GO OVER A LEGISLATIVE SCHEDULE, SUCH AS GROUND STAGE FOR WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT THAT WAY WE'LL MOVE ONTO THE GOVERNOR'S JANUARY BUDGET AND PROVISIONS IN THE BUDGET THAT PROPOSES TO WANT TO SWITCH TO SPECIFIC LEGISLATION THAT, UH, PRIMARILY FOCUSES ON HOUSING, UM, AND THEN FINISH UP WITH SOME FEDERAL FUNDING UPDATE OF POTENTIALLY GOOD NEWS, UH, OF FUNDING FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT QUICKLY ON THE CALENDAR.

WE ARE AT THE START OF THE FIRST YEAR OF A BRAND NEW TWO-YEAR SESSION.

SO SACRAMENTO HAS TWO YEAR LEGISLATIVE SESSIONS WHERE IF A BILL DOES NOT MAKE IT PASS IN THE FIRST YEAR, IT IS ALIVE FOR THE SECOND YEAR.

BUT AFTER THAT SECOND YEAR, EVERYTHING IS DEAD AND HAS TO BE REINTRODUCED.

SO WE'RE AT THE BEGINNING OF A TWO YEAR SESSION RIGHT NOW, EVERYTHING THAT WAS INTRODUCED AND FAILED TO PASS LAST YEAR, UH, HAS TO COME BACK THIS YEAR IN A DIFFERENT FORM, DIFFERENT BILL NUMBER.

UM, LAST YEAR YOU'LL REMEMBER THAT WE HAD A, BECAUSE OF COVID-19 WE HAD A HYBRID IN-PERSON VIRTUAL MODEL IN SACRAMENTO.

A LOT OF LEGISLATORS WERE NOT GOING TO SACRAMENTO.

A LOT OF THE COMMITTEE MEETINGS TRANSFERRED ONTO ONLINE PLATFORMS, SUCH AS ZOOM IT'S LOOKING AT LIKE, AND WE HAD, THERE'S NOT, HASN'T BEEN AN ANNOUNCEMENT, BUT IT'S LOOKING LIKE FOR THE REMAINDER OF 2021, WE'RE PROBABLY GOING TO BE LOOKING AT A HYBRID MODEL IN SACRAMENTO, AS WELL AS THE LEGISLATURE TRIES TO KEEP AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE OUT OF THE CAPITOL AND OUT OF COMMITTEE CHAMBERS.

EVEN RIGHT NOW, THE CAPITOL IS CLOSED TO, UH, TO ANYONE WHO DOES NOT WORK THERE.

AND EVEN IF YOU DO WORK THERE ONLY ONE STAFF MEMBER IS ALLOWED PER LEGISLATIVE OFFICE IN THE BUILDING AT A TIME.

UM, SO WHEN YOU CAN REALLY STOP, IT REALLY, UH, CHANGES THE DYNAMIC WHEN THE CAPITOL IS EMPTY.

THAT'S, YOU KNOW, USUALLY THE BUSINESS HAS DONE FACE-TO-FACE IN SACRAMENTO, BUT WHEN IT'S EMPTY, IT HAS TO TRANSITION TO THE ONLINE PLATFORM.

SO SOMETHING TO GET USED TO IN, IN 2020 AND 2021, THE BILL INTRODUCTION DEADLINE WAS ON FRIDAY.

SO ALL BILLS CAN GO BACK ASIDE FOR A SECOND.

SORRY.

THE INTRODUCTION DEADLINE WAS ON FRIDAY.

SO ALL BILLS THAT ARE INTRODUCED SO FAR ARE IN OR ARE FINAL FOR THE YEAR, UNLESS THERE WAS A GUT AND AMEND, UH, IN, IN, IN, LATER IN THE SESSION, ROUGHLY 2,400 BILLS WERE INTRODUCED.

THAT'S SLIGHTLY LOWER THAN NORMAL YEARS FOR, FOR A JANUARY OR FOR JANUARY, FEBRUARY, UH, DEADLINES.

SO, UH, IT STILL IS A LOT OF BILLS TO COME THROUGH AND YOU CAN IMAGINE THE DIFFERENT POLICY TOPICS, THOSE BILLS, UH, YOU KNOW, PERTAIN.

IT'S A LOT OF, COVID-19 A LOT OF HOUSING, UH, BUT WE'LL GET INTO THAT IN A LITTLE SECOND IN A SECOND.

UM, AND THAT PROCESS WILL CONTINUE, UH, ALL THE WAY THROUGH SEPTEMBER 10TH.

ONE LAST DATA LEGISLATORS HAVE TO HAVE TO PASS BILLS AND THEN THE GOVERNOR HAS 30 DAYS TO SIGN AFTER THAT NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

UH, LEGISLATORS LEGISLATURES PRIORITIES THIS YEAR COVID-19 IS GOING TO BE THE TOP LEVEL PRIORITY THAT REALLY INFLUENCES EVERY OTHER PRIORITY.

UM, WILDFIRE PREVENTION IS A BIG ONE FOR THEM AS YOU KNOW, 2020 WAS THE WORST WILDFIRE OR MOST DESTRUCTIVE WILDFIRE SEASON ON RECORD IN CALIFORNIA.

UM, I DON'T EXPECT THAT TO GET ENTIRELY BETTER IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF YEARS, THE LEGISLATURE IS GOING TO BE FOCUSED ON USING A LOT OF THE CAP AND TRADE MONEY OR A LOT OF THE BUDGET ONE-TIME FUNDING ON WILDFIRE PREVENTION, ENFORCE MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES TO REDUCE THE RISK OF WILDFIRE AND REDUCE THE RISK OF PROPERTY AND HUMAN LIFE.

DURING THOSE EVENTS.

CLIMATE CHANGE OBVIOUSLY IS A BIG PRIORITY IN CALIFORNIA AND WILL CONTINUE TO BE BROADBAND INFRASTRUCTURE CAME IN, UM, SORT OF UNDER THE RADAR THIS YEAR, OR THERE'S BEEN A BIG PUSH FROM RURAL, UH, RURAL CALIFORNIA MEMBERS THAT THERE IS NO, UH, EQUITY IN THE BROADBAND INFRASTRUCTURE IN CALIFORNIA, AND THEY WERE TRYING TO DO THEIR BEST TO EXTEND THOSE, UH, HIGH, HIGH INTERNET, HIGH SPEED INTERNET ACCESS, AND SELF-SERVICE ACCESS TO DISADVANTAGED COMMUNITIES AND RURAL COMMUNITIES, COMMUNITIES ACROSS THE STATE, PUBLIC SAFETY AND SOCIAL JUSTICE WAS A BIG TOPIC LAST YEAR, BUT BECAUSE OF LAST MINUTE, UH, POLITICKING AND, AND DISAGREEMENTS IN THE CAPITOL AT THE DEADLINE, A LOT OF IT DID NOT GET DONE.

IT DID NOT GET THROUGH.

SO I DO EXPECT PUBLIC SAFETY AND SOCIAL JUSTICE TO BE BACK, UH, THIS YEAR, AT LEAST TOWARD THE LATER HALF OF THE SESSION.

UM, AND THEN HOUSING, WHICH WE'RE GOING TO FOCUS ON A LITTLE BIT TONIGHT, UM, IS, IS, IS A MAJOR TOPIC IN CALIFORNIA AND HAS BEEN FOR THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS, UH, DUE TO OUR, OUR HOUSING SHORTAGE HERE.

SO WE'LL GET INTO SOME WE'LL, WE'LL GET INTO SOME BILLS SPECIFICALLY ABOUT THAT.

UM, BUT FIRST WE'LL TALK ABOUT THE GOVERNOR'S BUDGET.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

THANK YOU, GOVERNOR IN JANUARY PROPOSED IS A BUDGET AND SENT IT TO THE LEGISLATURE, WHICH STARTS THE BUDGET PROCESS IN CALIFORNIA.

UM, THE GOVERNOR'S PROPOSING A $227.2 BILLION BUDGET.

THAT INCLUDES

[00:15:01]

GENERAL FUNDS AND SPECIAL FUNDS.

UM, SO THAT'S, THAT'S AN ALL-INCLUSIVE NUMBER.

UM, IT DID INCLUDE ABOUT 15 AND A HALF BILLION DOLLARS OF A PROJECTED SURPLUS THAT THEY ARE, THEY ARE RUNNING RIGHT NOW.

UM, THAT'S VASTLY DIFFERENT THAN LAST YEAR IN MAY.

IF YOU REMEMBER, WE WERE LOOKING AT ABOUT A $54 BILLION OPERATING DEFICIT.

UM, SO, UH, THAT HAS QUICKLY TURNED INTO A 15 AND A HALF BILLION DOLLAR SURPLUS, THANKS IN PART TO, UH, HIGHER THAN EXPECTED INCOME TAX RECEIPTS, UH, IN A, IN A QUICKER RATE ECONOMY, UH, ECONOMIC RECOVERY IN CALIFORNIA THAN ORIGINALLY EXPECTED LAST YEAR.

UM, HOWEVER, THOSE THAT SURPLUS IS ONE, ONE TIME ONLY, LIKE I SAID, AND IS EXPECTED TO GO AWAY NEXT YEAR, UM, WHERE DEFICITS WILL BE BACK.

UM, THE BUDGET THE GOVERNOR SENT TO THE LEGISLATURE TO CONSIDER INCLUDES 22 BILLION IN PROJECTED RESERVES, UM, WHICH TAKES US A LOT CLOSER TO THE 10% RAINY DAY FUND MANDATE, UM, UH, YOU KNOW, PASSED BY A PROPOSITION OF CALIFORNIA VOTERS BACK IN 2014, UM, TO, TO HAVE A 10% SAVINGS ACCOUNT OF OUR, OF OUR ENTIRE BUDGET.

UM, I WILL SAY THAT EARLIER TODAY, IF YOU WERE FOLLOWING THE NEWS AT ALL IN CALIFORNIA, THE GOVERNOR DID SIGN A SEVEN 7.6, ROUGHLY BILLION DOLLAR ECONOMIC STIMULUS PACKAGE.

THAT INCLUDES A LOT OF $2 BILLION OF GRANTS TO SMALL BUSINESSES IN CALIFORNIA, $600 PAYMENTS TO, TO THE MOST NEEDY AND THE POOREST INDIVIDUALS IN CALIFORNIA, AS WELL AS A HOST OF OTHER ECONOMIC STIMULUS PROGRAMS AND PROCEDURES TO HELP PULL CALIFORNIA OUT OF, OUT OF THE ECONOMIC SLUMP.

SO, UM, 7.6 BILLION.

THAT'S A LOT OF THAT 15 AND A HALF BILLION THAT YOU KNOW, THAT, THAT YOU CAN SEE HERE.

UM, AND THERE'S MORE TO COME.

I WOULD IMAGINE ON THE CLIMATE CHANGE SIDE, UH, AS WELL AS THE COVID-19 RESPONSE SIDE, WHERE HE'S ALREADY PLEDGED ABOUT FOUR AND A HALF BILLION DOLLARS OF THAT, ONE-TIME SURPLUS ON COVID-19 RESPONSE, SUCH AS TESTING AND VACCINE DISTRIBUTION.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE, A BUDGET FOR A TIMELINE FOR THE BUDGET.

AND WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT IS FROM NOW UNTIL EARLY MAY, UH, BUDGET SUBCOMMITTEE WILL MEET, UH, TO LOOK AT EACH OF THE LINE ITEMS IN THE GOVERNOR'S PROPOSAL AND, AND DISCUSS THEM AND SEE WHETHER OR NOT THEY HAVE QUESTIONS FOR THE ADMINISTRATION, UH, WHERE THEY WERE GETTING THEIR BACKUP DATA.

UM, ALL OF THE, ALL OF THE PROCESSES THAT YOU WOULD EXPECT IN A COMMITTEE, UH, IN MAY, THE GOVERNOR RELEASED HAS MAY REVISE, WHICH HAS, UH, MOSTLY THE SAME INFORMATION AS THE JANUARY BUDGET, BUT IT WILL HAVE MUCH MORE ACCURATE FINANCIAL NUMBERS BECAUSE OF THE, UH, TAX DEADLINE IN APRIL.

SO THE MAY WILL MEET MAY REVISE, WE'LL HAVE A LOT MORE ACCURATE NUMBERS TO BE ABLE TO FINE TUNE SOME OF THE PROPOSALS IN THE GOVERNMENT'S BUDGET, UM, FROM MAY TO JUNE BUDGET SUBCOMMITTEES, UH, AND, UH, THE, AND THE LEGISLATIVE LEADERS WILL LOOK AT THE GOVERNOR'S BUDGET AND ADD THEIR OWN PRIORITIES INTO THE BUDGET AND NEGOTIATE WITH THE ADMINISTRATION ON BUDGET ITEMS, UM, ALL IN FOR JUNE 15TH, WHICH IS THE LEGISLATIVE DEADLINE TO APPROVE THE BUDGET THAT'S CONSTITUTIONAL CALIFORNIA.

SO THE LEGISLATORS WILL NOT GET PAID IF THEY DO NOT RECRUIT A BUDGET BY JUNE 15TH.

UM, YOU CAN, UH, YOU CAN BET THAT THEY'RE GOING TO REPROVE THE BUDGET BY JUNE 15TH IN ORDER TO CONTINUE TO GET PAID.

UM, AND THEN OBVIOUSLY THE NEW FISCAL YEAR WILL BEGIN ON JULY 1ST, NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

UM, SO QUICKLY, WHY WAS, AS WE'RE MOVING ONTO HOUSING, I WANTED TO GIVE A, A QUICK SNAPSHOT, UH, UH, CONTEXT OF, OF HOUSING IN CALIFORNIA.

UM, AS YOU KNOW, OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS, YOU KNOW, FIVE, SIX, SEVEN YEARS, UH, THAT THE THEME OF CALIFORNIA HAS BEEN TO TAKE LOCAL CONTROL AWAY FROM LOCAL AGENCIES IN THE SPIRIT OF PROVIDING ADDITIONAL SUPPLY OF, OF HOUSING, UH, STATEWIDE.

SO THESE 10 BILLS ARE BILLS THAT I CHOSE, UM, THAT HAVE EITHER PASSED OR, UH, OR WORKING THEIR WAY THROUGH THE PROCESS AND ALMOST PASSED, UM, THAT ALL ADDRESSED LAND, USE PLANNING, UM, LOCAL DESIGN REVIEW, ACCESSORY DWELLING UNITS, UM, REALLY ALL OF THE SUBJECTS, UM, UH, YOU KNOW, THAT USED TO BE UNDER THE PURVIEW OF LOCAL GOVERNMENTS, UH, TO, TO APPROVE OR DENY BASED ON WHAT WAS, WHAT WAS RIGHT FOR THE COMMUNITY, UM, SLOWLY BUT SURELY CHIPPING AWAY ON THE LOCAL CONTROL THAT THAT CITIES HAVE.

UM, HOUSING HAS REALLY BECOME A DEFENSIVE GAME FOR CITIES AND LOCAL AGENCIES UP IN SACRAMENTO.

UH, IT'S REALLY HARD TO GET TRACTION ON THE OFFENSIVE AND TO PUSH THROUGH HOUSING, UH, SENSIBLE HOUSING MEASURES, UH, YOU KNOW, BASED ON THE PUSHBACK FROM, UM, UH, USER GROUPS IN ACLU AND OTHER NONPROFITS THAT REALLY BELIEVE IN HOUSING AND TRYING TO PUSH HOUSING THROUGH STATEWIDE, UH, DOWN THE THROATS OF LOCAL GOVERNMENTS, DESPITE, UH, YOU KNOW, JUST BY COMMUNITY CONDITIONS.

UM, SO, UH, IN 2019, EVERYTHING EXCEPT FOR SB 50, UH, PASSED ON THAT LIST IN 2020, UH, UH, THESE WERE HEADED TOWARD PASSAGE.

I WOULD SAY COVID-19 DERAILED A LOT OF, UH, 2019 LEGISLATION, UH, YOU KNOW, MORE THAN HALF OF BILLS DIDN'T PASS BECAUSE OF COVID-19 AND, AND, AND THE DELAYS THERE.

UH, BUT WE DO, BUT THREE OF THOSE BILLS IN 2020 ARE ALREADY BACK THAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT TONIGHT.

UM, SO, YOU KNOW, HOUSING IS, IS REALLY, UH, A BROKEN WHEEL WHERE IF IT, IF IT DOESN'T WORK THE FIRST TIME, IT KEEPS COMING

[00:20:01]

BACK THE NEXT TIME.

UM, SO WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO BE ON TOP OF THAT.

UM, AND WE CAN GET INTO THE FIRST BILL HERE, UM, ON THE NEXT, THIS IS NOT, THIS IS THE ONLY NON HOUSING BILL ON THE LIST, BUT I DIDN'T, I WANT TO BRING IT TO YOUR ATTENTION AS IT COULD HAVE SOME POTENTIAL MAGNITUDE FOR THE CITY.

UM, THIS BILL WOULD REQUIRE ALL LOCAL AGENCIES TO HAVE A INTERNET BASED OR CALL IN FEATURE FOR MEETING VIRTUAL, SUCH AS THIS ONE, UM, BECAUSE OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, UH, TO INCLUDE A CLOSED CAPTIONING FEATURE, UH, TO REALLY PROMOTE ACCESS FOR THOSE WHO ARE NOT ABLE TO LISTEN, UM, THAT HAS SOME COSTLY IMPLICATIONS TO IT.

UM, THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF FEEDBACK FROM LOCAL GOVERNMENTS ABOUT THE TECHNICAL VIABILITY OF THAT, ESPECIALLY IN LOCAL, UH, OR RURAL, UH, A PLACES WHERE, UH, THE TECHNICAL EXPERTISE, TECHNICAL EXPERTISE ISN'T AS READILY AVAILABLE.

UM, ANOTHER CHALLENGE THAT BILL HAS IS THAT IT WOULD REQUIRE LOCAL AGENCIES TO TRANSLATE, UH, UH, MEETING MATERIALS INTO LANGUAGES THAT ARE SPOKEN BY AT LEAST 5% OF INDIVIDUALS IN YOUR JURISDICTION.

UM, A LOT OF QUESTION MARKS SURROUNDING THIS AND, AND, YOU KNOW, INCLUDING WHO MAKES THAT DETERMINATION OF WHO SPEAKS, WHAT LANGUAGE AND WHAT IN AND IN WHAT JURISDICTION, UM, WHAT EXACTLY DO YOU HAVE TO TRANSLATE? WHAT TH WHAT DON'T YOU TRANSLATE? UM, AND THERE'S CONCERNS THAT THIS APPLIES TO, UH, PUBLIC COMMENTS, UH, AT MEETINGS WHERE YOU, UH, CITIES WOULD BE ON THE HOOK FOR PUTTING THE BILL FOR TRANSLATORS FOR, UH, ANY LANGUAGE THAT IS SPOKEN BY 5% OF THE APRON, LOCAL AGENCIES JURISDICTION, UM, THAT HAS INTENSE, UH, YOU KNOW, FINANCIAL COST, AS YOU CAN IMAGINE.

UM, WE'VE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH THE OFFICER'S OFFICE WHO, UH, PREFERRED NOT TO TALK ABOUT THE 5% LANGUAGE, BECAUSE THEY HAD GOTTEN SO MUCH PUSHBACK FROM LOCAL GOVERNMENT ALREADY, UM, THAT THEY HAVE ALREADY DISCUSSED AMENDMENTS THAT HAVE ALREADY EXP ARE EXPECTING TO TAKE AMENDMENTS, THAT THEY HOPE WILL BE SOME OF THOSE LOCAL GOVERNMENT CONCERNS.

THOSE AMENDMENTS SHOULD BE AVAILABLE IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS, AND WE'LL BRING THEM BACK TO THE CITY.

UH, BUT IT DOES NOT SOUND LIKE THEY'RE BACKING DOWN FROM THE CLOSED CAPTIONING FEATURE PORTION OF THE BILL.

UM, BUT THERE MIGHT BE SOME SIGNIFICANT AMENDMENTS ON THE 5% LANGUAGE OF, OF, UH, TRANSIT PLEASE.

I BUY PRO TEM ATKINS IS A SPOT BILL.

SO WHAT THAT MEANS IS THAT AS IT'S WRITTEN, THE BILL HAS NO SUBSTANTIVE LEGISLATIVE LANGUAGE.

IT IS NOT A BILL THAT CAN PASS AS IS.

IT REALLY IS ONLY AN INTENSE BILL.

UM, THEY DO THIS IN ORDER TO GET BILLS IN BEFORE THE DEADLINE, AND WE'LL GO BACK AND AMEND THE BILL WITH SUBSTANTIVE LANGUAGE AT A DIFFERENT TIME WHEN THEY'RE READY.

UM, SO SB FIVE IS A SPOT BILL THAT SAYS THAT IS THEIR INTENT LATER TO TURN IT INTO A HOUSING BOND STATEWIDE.

SO THIS IS THE FIRST BILL OF THE PROTONS HOUSING PACKAGE.

SHE'S CALLING, WE'LL GO THROUGH MOST OF THE BILLS IN THE HOUSING PACKAGE TONIGHT.

UM, BUT ESSENTIALLY IT WOULD BE THE FUNDING SOURCE FOR A LOT OF THESE BILLS THAT WE'RE GOING TO SEE IN A LOT OF THE HOUSING SUPPLY EFFORTS IN THE STATE AS FUNDING IS, UH, YOU KNOW, MOST OF, YOU KNOW, A MAJOR BARRIER TO, UH, TO HOUSING SUPPLY IN CALIFORNIA.

THE BILL DOES NOT HAVE DOLLAR AMOUNTS YET IN TERMS OF HOW, HOW BIG THIS BOND WILL BE.

UM, BUT IT DOES SPECIFY THAT IT WILL TARGET HOMELESS, LOW INCOME AND VERY LOW INCOME HOUSING CATEGORIES IN TERMS OF WHERE THIS FUNDING WOULD GO.

THERE'S NO DATE, BUT MY BEST GUESS IS THIS'LL BE ON A NOVEMBER, 2022 BALLOT.

UM, ASSUMING IT GETS THROUGH THE PROCESS THIS YEAR, UH, AND IT HAS TO GO THROUGH A VOTE OF THE PEOPLE IN ORDER TO HAVE A BOND.

UM, BUT AS OF NOW, NO LANGUAGE, UH, GOING INTO THIS, WE'LL HAVE TO WAIT A COUPLE MONTHS MAYBE TO GET THAT LANGUAGE SP SIX BY CENTER EURO IS A REINTRODUCTION OF SB 1385 THAT YOU SAW ON THAT SNAPSHOT SIDE.

A SLIDE.

WHAT THIS DOES IS THIS BRINGS HOUSING AS AN ELIGIBLE ELIGIBLE USE FOR, UH, COMMERCIAL AND RETAIL ZONED PARCELS.

SO, UM, THE INTENT OF THIS BILL IS TO TURN THE, UH, UNUSED, UH, COMMERCIAL AND RETAIL ZONED PARCELS INTO HOUSING AS AN, AS AN ELIGIBLE USE.

SO, UH, AS PART OF THE, PART OF THE BILL, THOSE, UH, RETAIL AND COMMERCIAL ZONES, UH, PARCELS HAVE TO HAVE MORE THAN 50% OF THEIR SQUARE FOOTAGE AS VACANCIES IN TERMS OF THEIR TENANCY, UH, ABILITIES, UH, FOR AT LEAST THREE YEARS IN ORDER TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR THIS.

UH, BUT REALLY IT WOULD ALLOW A DEVELOPER TO GO TO A CITY AND REALLY FORCED THE CITY TO REZONE CERTAIN PARCELS AS RESIDENTIAL, IF THEY'RE IN A COMMERCIAL OR RETAIL SPACE, UM, AS LONG AS IT MEETS CERTAIN CRITERIA, INCLUDING THE VACANCY REQUIREMENTS, LIKE I SAID, I SAID, UM, A LOCAL AGENCY HAS THE ABILITY TO DENY THAT REQUEST AS LONG AS IT REALLOCATES THAT LOSS OF DENSITY.

YEAH.

SOMEWHERE ELSE, SO THAT THERE IS NO NET LOSS.

UM, IT ALSO ALLOWS LOCAL AGENCIES TO DEVELOP, UH, OR TO BE SUBJECT TO ZONING, PARKING DESIGN, AND OTHER ORDINANCE THAT THAT WOULD APPLY TO OTHER LIKE DEVELOPMENT OF, OF SIMILAR DENSITIES.

UM, OBVIOUSLY THIS IS A, UH, CONCERN, UM, STATEWIDE FOR LOCAL GOVERNMENTS INITIALLY.

UM, THERE ARE SOME DESCRIPTIONS THAT MAKE IT, UH, PROBABLY NOT AS, UH, NOT AS USABLE AS IT, AS YOU MIGHT THINK, UH, STATEWIDE,

[00:25:01]

UH, BUT STILL ANOTHER ATTEMPT SACRAMENTO OF WRESTLING, LOCAL CONTROL FROM LOCAL AGENCIES.

UM, IT'S CURRENTLY IN THE SENATE GOVERNANCE AND FINANCE COMMITTEE AND THE SENATE HOUSING COMMITTEE DOUBLE REFERRED.

AND IT HAS YET TO BE SET FOR A HEARING, BUT THAT HEARING SHOULD BE IN THE NEXT THREE WEEKS HERE.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE NINE, UH, BY, ALSO BY PROTON MAKIN.

UH, THIS IS THE REINTRODUCTION OF SBO 1120 FROM LAST YEAR THAT FAILED ON THE LAST NIGHT AFTER IT, UH, PROCEDURALLY IT DIDN'T MAKE IT OUT OF THE ASSEMBLY BACK TO THE SENATE IN TIME FOR A PROCEDURAL VOTE, WHICH DID NOT MAKE THE PROTESTS VERY HAPPY BECAUSE SHE REALLY WANTED THIS BILL TO PASS LAST YEAR.

UM, BUT REALLY WHAT THIS WOULD DO IS IT WOULD REQUIRE CITIES AND COUNTIES TO MINISTERIALLY APPROVE, UH, HOUSING DEVELOPMENTS OF TWO UNITS.

SO A DUPLEX FOR EACH RESIDENTIAL PARCEL OR SUBDIVIDING LOTS INTO TWO EQUAL PARCELS, URBAN LOTS OF SPLITS.

UM, THERE'S A LOT OF, UH, NOT A LOT OF FLEXIBILITY CITIES HAVE TO PREVENT THIS.

UH, THERE IS A LIST OF EXCLUSIONS, VERY HIGH FIRE SEVERITY ZONES IS ONE THAT WOULD HELP THE CITY OF CHINO HILLS IN TERMS OF PARCELS WITHIN THAT ZONE THAT YOU DO HAVE A SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF YOUR CITY IN THAT ZONE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO BE SPLIT THIS WAY OR TO BE ADDED ON THIS WAY, HISTORIC DISTRICTS, AND THEN PROXIMITY TO THE CERTAIN INDUSTRIAL USES LIKE HAZARDOUS WASTE SITES AS WELL.

UM, I WILL SAY THAT THE LEAGUE IS TAKING A VERY BIG INTEREST IN THIS BILL THIS YEAR.

THEY ARE PUSHING VERY HARD, UH, FOR A SET OF AMENDMENTS, UM, FROM THEIR CITIES, UH, FOR THIS BILL, INCLUDING I THINK MOST IMPORTANTLY CLARIFICATION ON ADU, UH, PROCEDURES.

UM, CURRENTLY AS THE BILL IS WRITTEN, IT, IT LOOKS LIKE YOU ARE FORCED TO REQUIRE EACH OF THESE UNITS.

SO A DUPLEX ON A SINGLE FAMILY LOT, UH, EACH OF THOSE TWO UNITS CAN NOW HAVE AN ADU.

SO NOW YOU HAVE FOUR UNITS AND EACH OF THOSE ADS CAN HAVE JUNIOR AID USE.

AND NOW YOU'RE AT 60 UNITS ON A PARCEL THAT USED TO BE A SINGLE FAMILY HOME RESIDENTIAL.

UM, SO, UH, THAT HAS SOME CONCERNS FOR THE LEAGUE, OBVIOUSLY, AND FOR CITIES ABOUT THE, THE LOSS OF CONTROL IN TERMS OF THAT, UH, THAT ZONING AND THAT OBJECTIVE DESIRED OBJECTIVE DESIGN REVIEW STANDARDS.

UM, AS LONG AS THEY, UH, YOU KNOW, YOU, YOU CAN USE THOSE STANDARDS AS LONG AS THEY DO NOT CONFLICT WITH THE BILL.

UM, BUT I FIND THAT TO BE VERY NARROW IN TERMS OF WHAT THAT ALLOWS YOU TO DO.

UM, THAT'S ALSO IN THE SAME COMMITTEES THAT WILL BE HEARD AROUND THE SAME TIME.

I IMAGINE IN THE NEXT THREE WEEKS, SB 10 BY SENATOR WIENER IS ANOTHER RE-INTRODUCTION OF A BILL THAT FAILED LAST YEAR.

UM, SENATOR WIENER IS THE AUTHOR OF SB 50.

IF YOU'LL REMEMBER THAT REALLY TRIED TO, UH, FORCE HOUSING INTO AREAS THAT ARE TRANSIT RICH OR JOBS RICH OR AN URBAN INFILL SITE.

UM, HE HAS BEEN DENIED SEVERAL TIMES NOW IN HIS, UH, UH, EFFORTS, UH, IN, IN, IN THAT TYPE OF BILL KIND OF TAKING A DIFFERENT APPROACH HERE, UM, WHERE INSTEAD OF MANDATING IT, IT'LL GIVE THE OPTION FOR A CITY TO OFFER, UH, TO PASS AN ORDINANCE, UH, TO BE ABLE TO ZONE PARCELS FOR UP TO 10 UNITS OF RESIDENTIAL DENSITY PER PARCEL WITH HEIGHTS DESIGNATED BY THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT.

UM, THAT PARCEL HAS TO BE IN A TRANSIT RICH, A JOBS RICH, OR AN URBAN INFILL SITE WHEN SB 50 WAS GOING THROUGH THE PROCESS A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO.

UM, WE WERE VERY INVOLVED IN THE MAP MAKING PROCESS AND TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW THOSE MAPS WERE BEING DISTRIBUTED.
