    Sacramento Update: Breakfast with Bloom (NON-MEMBERS-use this form to register)

    Friday, December 13, 2019 at 07:15 AM
    Helms Design Center in Culver City , CA

    Nearly every challenge facing Los Angeles relates to a law, policy, or funding source that comes out of Sacramento. And it's been another busy year in the capital. Lately, the legislature has taken a particularly active -- and, some would say, invasive -- role in regulating local land use. Recent legislative sessions have included dozens of laws related to housing in particular, with new funding streams and new regulations to compel cities to plan for housing, whether they like it or not. Meanwhile, local officials and stakeholders, who are divided on matters of housing and growth across the Westside, await the impacts of these laws. 

    The Westside's own Assemblymember Richard Bloom has been on the forefront of these issues. He has authored several new housing laws to promote accessory dwelling units and to strengthen tenant protections. As well, he has promoted restrictions on greenhouse gas emissions as the chair of the Assembly Budget Subcommittee on Resources and Transportation. And, having served as mayor and longtime city council member in Santa Monica, Bloom appreciates the relationship between localities and state government. He will join WUF this month to shed light on these topics and offer an inside view into Sacramento's legislative year and the year to come.
