California needs to build affordable housing. Its racist Article 34 makes that too difficult
Los Angeles Times - 2/8/19
California voters have consistently backed the building of affordable housing, and they have been generous in paying for it. Since 1988, the state has passed seven housing bonds worth more than $9 billion to fund the construction of homes for seniors, the homeless, farmworkers and low-income families. Yet despite voters’ steady support, there remains a terrible, crisis-level shortage of affordable housing for middle- and low-income Californians — and a provision in the state Constitution that makes it unnecessarily difficult to build that housing.
