Could California YIMBY rescue housing in the Golden State?

  • The California Association of Realtors has welcomed a new lobby group, California YIMBY, set up by tech entrepreneurs and housing advocates to help sway housing policy in the state capital.

California’s leading tech firms are done leaving the state’s affordable housing crisis for others to sort out. Their workers in the Golden State depend on a turnaround, and they’ve set up an advocacy group to be based Sacramento, the seat of the state government, to lobby for laws that would double the rate of homebuilding in California.
