AB 724 (Wicks), a rental registry bill opposed by C.A.R., will not be moving forward this year. Current law allows a local government to establish a rental registry within its jurisdiction. AB 724 establishes a new statewide rental registry that would have required ALL residential rental property owners to annually register their units with the Department of Housing and Community Development by providing and continually updating a multitude of information. C.A.R. had been working with the authors office to secure amendments to exempt small landlords who own or operate rental properties with 15 units or less from the provisions of the bill. The requested amendments are still pending but the bill will not be moving forward this year. 

AB 1568 (McCarty), while C.A.R.’s housing element implementation and accountability bill will not be moving forward this year, a similar proposal remains in the Governor’s “May revise” of the state budget.
Local governments are required to update their housing element every five to eight years. Enacted in 2017, AB 72 (Santiago and Chiu) requires the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) to notify local governments if their housing element does not substantially comply with state law and permits the department to refer these violations to the Attorney General. On or before January 1, 2025, AB 1568 would prohibit a city or county, failing to comply with the state’s housing element law, from applying for state transportation grant funds. Although AB 1568 will not be moving forward in 2019, the Governor has included a similar proposal in a budget trailer bill, which is currently being considered by the Legislature. 

AB 1590 (Blanca Rubio), C.A.R.’s first-time homebuyer tax credit bill, passed out of the Assembly Appropriations Committee.
Opportunities for first time home buyers are dwindling in California due to a lack of supply and, in turn, increasing costs, especially for individuals and families of low or moderate income in disadvantaged communities. This bill allows certain first-time homebuyers to receive a tax credit for purchasing a principal residence under specified conditions.

SB 50 (Wiener), C.A.R.’s housing development bill, will not be moving forward this year.
C.A.R. is a co-sponsor of SB 50, which sought to authorize the implementation of transit/job-rich housing project “height” bonus for new urban developments that were consistent with the local design requirements and local planning or zoning. Specifically, SB 50 would have encouraged the development of mid-rise, multi-family unit, housing construction with close, walkable access to bus, rail and ferry transit in counties with populations over 600,000 or in cities with more than 50,000 residents. The bill exempted cities located within the coastal zone with less than 50,000 residents, as well as, parcels located in either a historical district established prior to 2010, high fire severity zone or flood plain from accessing the density “height” bonus. The Chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee, with the blessing of the Senate Pro Tem, decided to delay action on SB 50 until 2020. C.A.R. remains committed to passing this bill in 2020 and looks forward to working with the Governor and lawmakers to advance other innovative proposals seeking to address the housing crisis.

SCA 5 (Hill), a parcel tax vote threshold reduction bill opposed by C.A.R., passed out of the Senate Appropriations Committee.
SCA 5 reduces the vote threshold required for a school district to impose a parcel tax from two-thirds to 55% of the voters in the area. C.A.R. opposes SCA 5 because it supports keeping the two-thirds vote requirement except for voter approval of education bonds.
