Tiny Apartments May Solve California's Housing Crisis

Housing Crisis

A lawmaker in California is upset about the lack of affordable housing in California, so he decided that he was going to do something about it. He sponsored a bill that would require that construction workers build more apartments near the public transit line in San Diego. Too Gloria is the assemblyman who proposed the bill. He stated that he does not understand why there is so much luxury housing when most people are struggling.

There are already cities in San Diego that have proposed building housing near public transit lines. Todd's bill proposes that 20 percent of the new housing be made accessible to people whose income is half of what the city's median is, which is $66,000. The bill also stated that the rest of the housing should be made affordable for people whose income is $66,000 or slightly higher.

Kevin L. Faulconer is the mayor of San Diego. He stated that aggressive action must be taken in order to solve the housing crisis. He believes that the new legislation will make it easier and more affordable for people to get housing. He also stated that affordable homes and strong neighborhoods are some of the keys to a healthy economy.

Kevin wants to get the project off of the ground as soon as possible. He stated that he wants to see more people living in homes that they can afford. People want to have a place that they can call home. San Diego has the 4th largest homeless population in the country. The lack of affordable housing has contributed to the housing crisis.

Todd stated that the housing crisis has to be resolved as soon as possible because it is putting pressure on working families. The bill proposes that construction workers build smaller houses that are more affordable for people.
