The following statement can be attributed to League of California Cities President and Town of Yountville Mayor John F. Dunbar:

“The League has always agreed with Senator Wiener on the need to increase housing supply across the state; however we did not agree that SB 50 was the best approach to do so.

“During this legislative session, we look forward to continuing to work with Senator Wiener, all of the members of the Senate and Assembly, the Governor and other stakeholders to find smart, effective solutions to the housing crisis currently gripping our state. Any solution will require a long-term state funding commitment that matches the scale of a crisis that has been decades in the making.”

Established in 1898, the League of California Cities is a nonprofit statewide association that advocates for cities with the state and federal governments and provides education and training services to elected and appointed city officials.
