CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill No. 2903


Introduced by Assembly Member Irwin

February 16, 2018


An act to add Section 50093.1 to the Health and Safety Code, relating to housing.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2903, as introduced, Irwin. Housing programs: definitions: workforce housing.
Existing law governing housing and home finance programs defines various terms for purposes of those programs, including the term “persons and families of low or moderate income,” which is generally defined as persons and families whose income does not exceed 120% of area median income, adjusted as provided.
This bill, for these purposes, would define the terms “affordable workforce housing” and “affordable owner-occupied workforce housing” as housing that is affordable to persons and families of low or moderate income.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 50093.1 is added to the Health and Safety Code, to read:

50093.1.
 Notwithstanding any other law, “affordable workforce housing” and “affordable owner-occupied workforce housing” means housing that is affordable to persons and families of low or moderate income, as that term is defined in Section 50093.
