Livable California recommends Governor Newsom Veto AB 1487

As a member of the Board of Directors of Livable California, I sent the attached letter, written on behalf of our Board, to Governor Gavin Newsom, which was delivered last week. While it remains to be seen whether it will have an impact on the Governor’s decision to veto AB 1487, we will not rest until we can turn around the false narrative that is fueling so many misguided housing bills this year.


Dear Governor Newsom,

On behalf of Livable California, a non-profit organization that is committed to the wise planning and appropriate growth of California's communities, we urge you veto AB 1487 for the following reasons:

In conclusion, we appreciate your efforts to expand the state's supply of truly affordable housing, but AB 1487 isn't the way to do it. It would be best to pursue your efforts the right way rather than a fast way that is unaware of its consequences.

Please veto AB 1487.

Sincerely,

T. Keith Gurnee - Livable California Board of Directors
