Assembly Bill
No. 2324

Introduced by Assembly Member Friedman

February 14, 2020

An act to repeal Section 10608.35 of the Water Code, relating to water. An act to add Section 65852.27 to the Government Code, relating to housing.


AB 2324, as amended, Friedman. Urban water use. Accessory dwelling units: prohibition of rent or lease.
Existing law, the Planning and Zoning Law, authorizes a local agency to provide, by ordinance, for the creation of accessory dwelling units in single-family and multifamily dwelling residential zones and requires a local agency that has not adopted an ordinance to ministerially approve an application for an accessory dwelling unit. Existing law also authorizes a local agency to allow, by ordinance, for the sale or conveyance of an accessory dwelling unit separate from the primary residence to a qualified buyer, as defined, upon meeting specified conditions.
This bill would prohibit a person, as defined, from renting or leasing more than 15 of the person’s accessory dwelling units, as defined, in the state.

Existing law requires the Department of Water Resources, in coordination with the State Water Resources Control Board, to conduct necessary studies and investigations, as prescribed, and make a recommendation to the Legislature, by January 1, 2020, on the feasibility of developing and enacting water loss reporting requirements for urban wholesale water suppliers.

This bill would repeal these provisions.
