State bills on housing
Three California bills aimed at creating housing opportunities -- AB 302, SB 4 and SB 50 -- are discussed by Palo Alto Weekly journalists. AB 302, the "Safe Lot" bill, would guarantee that homeless community-college students can sleep overnight in their cars on campus. The discussion on that bill begins at the 0:50 timestamp. SB 4 and SB 50 are bills would allow for greater density of housing along transit corridors. The discussion on those bills begin at the 10:50 timestamp.
