SACRAMENTO (March 12) – The CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (C.A.R.) today announced its sponsorship or support of legislation that make up a bold package of bills to address California’s housing shortage through increasing supply and removing barriers to development. C.A.R. and its membership of more than 200,000 real estate professionals stand ready to work with Gov. Gavin Newsom, the Legislature and key stakeholders during the 2019 legislative session to advance innovative solutions to ensure all Californians can realize the American Dream of homeownership.
“California is at a tipping point, and the housing crisis threatens to permanently impede the state’s economic growth,” said C.A.R. President Jared Martin. “It’s time for California’s leaders to take the necessary bold action and support legislative solutions to address the housing shortage and answer the governor’s call earlier this year to ‘build housing for all.’”
