Jennifer Hernandez has helped policy makers focus on a major cause of California’s housing shortage. Now everyone is talking about her approach to this serious problem. Read this story in the LA Times.
Kerry Jackson at the Pacific Research Institute recently published an article with findings that “The California Environmental Quality Act is by far the most destructive of the causes that factor into California’s housing crisis. Its regulatory hurdles have sharply increased the cost of building, which has led to a severe shortage of homes that pushed prices to levels that many can’t afford.” Read the article.
Ms. Hernandez will explain how abuse of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) is harming California’s environmental, social equity and economic priorities. She will present refreshing bipartisan solutions to resolving the complex issues that have contributed to the housing shortage crisis we are facing today. Learn more.
