Assembly Bill
No. 599

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 599, as introduced, Maienschein. 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.
Existing law provides that 20% of the moneys in the Building Homes and Jobs Trust Fund on and after January 1, 2019, be appropriated by the Legislature and expended for affordable owner-occupied workforce housing.
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.
