California has the highest gas taxes in America. These disproportionately hurt families who can afford it the least. Sky-high housing prices are tearing generations of Californians apart as our young families move out of state where the same house costs half the price. We need housing proposals to incentivize builders to create more housing that we can actually afford so our children can raise families in California just like we did.
Recent studies have shown that upward of 40% of housing price is due to regulatory burdens and permitting fees. We need to slash those. I’ll fight for CEQA reform. This law is abused by trial lawyers, unions and NIMBY folks to block and delay construction.
