CAR likes proposed state budget

Members of the California Association of Realtors have found several things to like in Gov. Gavin Newsom’s proposed 2021 state budget.

“As champions for homeownership and housing affordability for all Californians, the California Association of Realtors and its membership … are highly encouraged by Gov. Gavin Newsom’s 2021 budget proposal,” the association said in a statement.

Specifically, the Los Angeles-based association likes that the budget includes $2 million for the Department of Fair Employment and Housing. If approved, that money will be used to conduct outreach education campaigns, housing surveys, and prosecute violations of anti-housing discrimination laws.

The 200,000-member association also gave a thumbs up to Newsom’s proposed Housing Accountability Unit, which would help enforce state housing laws at the local level.

“[The association] looks forward to working with the governor and the legislature on advancing this budget proposal and other policies to ease California’s housing affordability crisis and begin to make our housing laws more equitable for all Californians” the statement reads.
