The NVPOA Gala and Awards Ceremony is more than just an evening of socializing and celebrating those who are being awarded. It is our number one fundraiser for us to stay affilliated with the CalRHA. The CalRHA advocated for our rights as property owners. Some bills that were defeated thanks to CalRHA's lobbying efforts that I would like to highlight are stated below.
AB 2053 (Lee) - Social Housing - Would have created the Social Housing Act and would have established the quasi-governmental authority, California Housing Authority, to produce and acquire social housing developments for the purpose of eliminating the gap between housing production and regional housing needs. - DEAD
AB 2597 (Bloom) - Indoor Air Temperature - This bill would have required for the next edition of
the California Building Standards Code adopted after January 1, 2023, to adopt mandatory building standards for the lack of cooling as a substandard condition for human habitation to ensure safe indoor ambient air temperature in dwelling units. - DEAD
SB 1335 (Eggman) - Credit History - This bill would have prohibited the use of a person’s credit history as part of the application process for rental housing without offering the applicant the option of providing alternative evidence of financial responsibility and ability to pay as the applicant may choose to submit when there is a government rent subsidy. The bill would require the housing provider to consider that alternative evidence in lieu of the person’s credit history when determining whether to offer the rental accommodation to the applicant. - DEAD
