Housing Market Index for May 2019

Southern California lacks 759,000 affordable homes, report says

Building Industry offering summer camp for 'junior builders'
May Member News

Hello BIASC Members,

As California continues to pursue aggressive housing policy solutions, we will continue to engage our state and local elected officials through education and collaborative efforts to help solve the state's 3.5 million housing shortage. Key legislation to watch that would directly impact our industry includes:

Oppose - SB 307 (Roth)/Bill Status: In Progress
SB 307 seeks to create a new undefined process which would negatively impact the Cadiz Water Project, a project that would create over 5,000 new jobs and supply water for 400,000 people in Southern California. We will continue to monitor and update membership on the bill's status.

Oppose - SB 732 (Allen)/Bill Status: Dead
In an unprecedented move, SB 372 would have allowed the South Coast Air Quality Management District to impose, increase, or extend a transactions and use tax.

I would like to thank the following BIASC members for their exemplary dedication and leadership to BIASC for our special events this month:
  • Board Member Dave Bartlett and his team at Brookfield Homes for hosting our Junior Builder Kick Off Event - View Photos Here
  • Board Member Greg McWilliams of Five Point for making waves on SCAG's Housing Panel
  • Board Member Alan Boudreau of Boudreau Pipeline for all the dedicated time in our office as BIASC Treasurer
