LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 400, Portantino. Highways: surplus residential property.
Existing law authorizes the Department of Transportation to acquire real property for state highway purposes and specifies various procedures to be followed by the department when it determines that real property acquired for state highway purposes is no longer necessary for those purposes.
Existing law declares the intent of the Legislature to preserve, upgrade, and expand the supply of current housing to persons or families of low or moderate income through the sale of specified surplus residential property. Existing law requires an agency of the state disposing of surplus residential property to do so in accordance with specified priorities and procedures, including that priority to purchase be given to tenants that are former owners or are persons or families of low or moderate income.
This bill would, until January 1, 2020, prohibit the Department of Transportation from increasing the rent of tenants who reside in surplus residential property located within the State Route 710 corridor in the County of Los Angeles and who participate in the Affordable Rent Program administered by the department.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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