Senate floor remarks by Senator Wiener on his legislation to ensure that all communities in California are creating housing. SB 35 will streamline the creation of housing in cities that aren’t meeting their housing goals and lead to more affordable housing throughout the state.
Senator Wiener co-hosted a Town Hall in San Francisco along with Assemblymembers David Chiu and Phil Ting to discuss California's response to the federal government and what is being done in Sacramento to continue to push forward a progressive agenda. Melissa Caen of KPIX-CBS 5 moderated the event.
Senator Wiener joined Senator Mike McGuire (D-Healdsburg) at a press conference prior to the first committee hearing for SB 149 -- the Presidential Tax Transparency & Accountability Act -- which they are joint authoring. The bill requires the release of 5 years of tax returns in order for a presidential candidate to appear on the California primary ballot.
