NEWSOM SIGNS 56 HOUSING BILLS TO BOOST AFFORDABILITY AND HELP TENANTS

California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Wednesday signed multiple housing bills aimed at tackling the state's lack of affordable housing and making it easier for tenants to rent a home in the first place. Newsom signed a whopping 56 bills into law which he said "incentivize and reduce barriers to housing and support the development of more affordable homes."

Housing developments will now be more streamlined with less red tape, density laws can be overruled in the interest of housing, and institutions like colleges or religious organizations can now use portions of their property to build housing. Newsom also signed a bill that will please anyone who has tried to rent in California on a limited income: Landlords can now only collect one months' rent as a security deposit instead of two.
