Tuesday, April 26, 2016

(Sacramento) – Assemblymember Kevin Mullin (D-San Mateo) and more than a dozen members of the Democratic Assembly Caucus have unveiled a plan that would deliver relief to California families struggling to keep up with skyrocketing rents. They have proposed more than $1.3 billion on a wide range of housing related efforts. Assemblymember Mullin noted that while other critical state programs that were cut during the Great Recession have since been restored, affordable housing funds are not among them and when housing costs are factored in, California has the highest poverty rate in the nation.
