Governor Newsom Delivers 2020 State of the State

Today the Governor delivered his 2020 State of the State. The link to the State of the State address is below.  The Governor devoted the majority of his speech discussing homelessness, including additional resources, a use it or lose it approach to spending local homeless dollars, different approaches to quickly get homeless off the street including trailers on state vacant lands and armories, and “density and certainty” in the local housing approval process.  He asked local governments to say yes to housing, and also noted that he would be working with the Legislature to come up with a bill to increase housing near transit and downtowns.
