francisco today, to sign a set of bills designed to start fixing the affordable housing crisis in the bay area and across the state. some of the new laws will bring in money for affordable housing, and others will cut through red tape that often delays projects. kron four's spencer blake is live tonight in san francisco ... to explain what some of these new laws mean. spencer? the bills governor brown signed today signified years of work from legislators and housing advocates.and the consensus about the package of new lawsseems to be that it's a drop in the bucket - but a drop people who can't afford housing nowwill gladly drink. "this is not the end of the road but this is a major step in the right direction and it continues the momentum that we're building to address the housing catastrophe that we're in."amie fishman with the non- profit housing association of northern california was there
to witness governor brown signing a package of 15 affordable housing bills in san francisco.one of the most helpful new laws, she says, is assembly bill 15-oh-five, which allows cities to require inclusionary housing within new, private developments. "local jurisdictions can pass policies where they say that, 'we want to include affordable housing - we want to include affordable homes within larger developments of housing."other laws help cut through red tape that often holds up construction of affordable housing.friday governor brown said part of what led to the housing crisis over the yearsare the local-level laws regarding things like building safety and energy efficiency. "it's all good. but like i always say, too many goods create a bad. so now you're trying clean up a lot of the bad, but it is a lot of good, too."s-b two - which adds a 75- dollar fee to real estate transactions - will start to generate hundreds of millions of dollars for affordable housing.senate bill three will ask voters to decide on a four-billion dollar housing bond next november."it has taken many years to get into this affordability crisis that we're in and it's gonna take
many more to get out of it.so don't expect to see a huge number of affordable housing units popping up immediately. it may still take seven to ten years to get them built. to put the money aspects in perspective, the state was handing out one billion dollars of redevelopment funds a year up until 2012so the money in today's new laws is quite a ways off.if voters approve the housing bond, these two measures will create enough funding for about 90- thousand affordable rental units statewide - also just a fraction of the one-point five million affordable rentals needed.live in sf, spencer blake, kron four news.
