During his Inauguration speech, Governor Newsom called for a “Marshal Plan” for affordable housing, stating “No one should live in constant fear of eviction or spend their whole paycheck to keep a roof overhead.”

The Governor is making it plain that he is going to put affordable housing issues front and center as a high priority and that he won’t be playing “small ball.”  From major funding increases for affordable housing, to his threat to take away any city’s transportation dollars if it doesn’t meet its housing quota, Newsom’s plans match the audacious ambitions he outlined in the campaign, according Matt Levin writing for CalMatters.
