In a joint statement issued at the end of July, the Governor, Senate Pro Tempore and Assembly Speaker announced their commitment to finally negotiating a housing package of bills upon their return from the summer legislative recess on August 21st. Habitat for Humanity California leaders are very hopeful with this announcement, however, we want to ensure that they set aside for homeownership, specifically in SB 2 (Atkins – permanent source) and inclusion of homeownership in SB 3 (Beall – general obligation bonds) remain in the final package.
Starting today, we ask that you continue your diligent efforts and call, write, or meet with your assemblymembers and senators to thank them for their support and to request that they support ONLY a housing package that includes specific funding for homeownership.
Remind them of the following:
Step 1: Find your district Enter your home address here to find your state senate and assembly representatives.
Step 3: Report Back Please report back the feedback you receive from legislators and/or their staff! You can email us at ‘ email@example.com.
Thank you for making the time to take action. Together, our voices are louder.
