Three P’s Celebrates Passage of AB 1486 in Senate Appropriations Committee;
Part of Bold 2019 Plan for Housing Production, Preservation, and Protection

Sacramento, CA — The Three P’s Coalition for Housing Production, Preservation, and Protection released the following statement after AB 1486 (Ting) moved to the Senate Floor: 

“Developing surplus public lands for affordable homes is a promising strategy for meeting California’s need to produce homes for the state’s people and families, but some agencies have circumvented requirements, delaying the sale of lands and development of affordable units entirely. The Three P’s coalition of business, labor, housing, environmental justice, local government, and other organizations supports AB 1486 to increase the accountability for local agencies to dispose of surplus lands, clarify which lands are subject to the law, and create enforcement mechanisms and oversight provisions to meet the law’s goals.”

 The Three P’s coalition represents a broad and diverse set of organizations from business, labor, housing, environmental justice, local government, and other sectors who have come together to secure California’s housing future. These organizations have united behind the 2019 Plan for Housing Production, Preservation, and Protection. The bill now goes to the Senate floor, where it must pass before the September 13th deadline.
