Government Affairs Committee Recap

With just over one month until the Midterm Election, BIASC's and BIASC Los Angeles/Ventura's Government Affairs Committees met together to discuss both regional issues (SCAG, SCAQMD updates, Construction General Permit Renewal, and more) and LA-centric issues (Safe & Clean Water Proposition, LA County Rent Control, LA County Affordable Housing Action Plan, Inclusionary Zoning, and more).
