Housing Legislative Working Group

Friday, March 29, 2019

The Housing Legislative Working Group advises both MTC’s Legislation Committee and the Association of Bay Area Governments’ Legislation Committee on housing-related bills pending in the state Legislature.

The working group will meet weekly during the legislative session to receive progress reports on housing-related bills in the state Assembly and state Senate, and to provide feedback on those bills to MTC and ABAG staff.

Local governments nominate appointees to the 27-member Housing Legislative Working Group, which MTC and ABAG established in March 2019. Clayton Vice Mayor Julie Pierce, Chair of the ABAG Legislation Committee, will serve as Chair of the Housing Legislative Working Group. Rohnert Park City Councilmember Jake Mackenzie, who is the Chair of MTC’s Legislation Committee, will serve as Vice Chair of the Housing Legislative Working Group.
