Full bill text:

  • The California Constitution prohibits the development, construction, or acquisition of a low-rent housing project, as defined, in any manner by any state public body until a majority of the qualified electors of the city, town, or county in which the development, construction, or acquisition of the low-rent housing project is proposed approve the project by voting in favor at an election, as specified. This measure would repeal these provisions.

By repealing Article 34, SCA 2 removes the power of wealthy neighborhoods to veto affordable housing developments -- and will help us build integrated, economically diverse communities.
