Gov. Jerry Brown has signed into law a pair of bills that will help chip away at the state’s housing shortage by making it easier to build in-law units on residential lots.

The bills include CAA-sponsored AB 2299 by Assemblyman Richard Bloom, D-Santa Monica, as well as SB 1069 by Sen. Bob Wieckowski, D-Fremont. Under the bills, local governments will lose the ability to mandate additional parking for second units when the units are within one-half mile of public transportation or ride-share parking areas.

AB 2299 is one of four CAA-sponsored housing-production bills signed by Brown this month.
