Props 1 and 2 win approval
California voters in Tuesday’s election approved Propositions 1 and 2, CAA-supported bond measures that together are expected to raise $6 billion, add much-needed affordable housing and help address the state’s homelessness crisis.
With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Proposition 1 had garnered 54.1 percent of the vote, while Proposition 2 had secured 61.1 percent.
Proposition 1 will authorize $4 billion in general obligation bonds for housing-related programs, loans, grants and projects, as well as housing loans for veterans.
The California Apartment Association’s Board of Directors supported both Props 1 and 2, which it considered better approaches to the state’s housing crises than Proposition 10, a rent control measure that CAA opposed and voters ultimately rejected.
