The controversial housing bill known as SB 50 in California has been pushed off to next year.

The ‘New Housing” bill that called for sweeping changes to California’s zoning rules is dead for the year. Advocates say it’s a major setback for an ambitious legislative package that aimed to solve the housing crisis, but residents call it a triumph as they worried the zoning overhaul would change their cities for the worse.

Senate Bill 50, which would have:

  • Allowed fourplexes in neighborhoods zoned for single-family homes.
  • Forced cities to approve taller, denser residential buildings near transit stops.
  • And was one of the most-watched — and hotly debated — bills of the year.

It also was the cornerstone of a group of bills that attempted to ease the affordable housing shortage that is driving Californian’s costs up and quality of life down.

The halt to the bill was a surprise. Moments before the bill was set to undergo a crucial vote in the Senate Appropriations Committee, the committee chair announced SB 50 would be held for the rest of the year and come back for a vote in January 2020.
