Senator Jim Beall, Chair of the Senate Transportation and Housing Committee and Senator Mike McGuire, Chair of the Senate Governance and Finance Committee will hold the first of two hearings this Tuesday, in the Capitol.

The first hearing, “Housing for Working Families: How Do We Pay For It?” kicks off at 1:30pm this Tuesday, Oct. 2 in Capitol Room 4203. This hearing will assess current state and other funding sources for affordable housing, seek to identify funding gaps, and begin a discussion of why funding alone is not sufficient to address the state’s housing crisis. The second hearing, which will be held later this fall in Southern California, will focus on the effects of land use policies on housing affordability and non-fiscal policy options to address California’s housing needs.

Both hearings will be livestreamed online at
