Law360, New York (September 19, 2016, 11:57 AM EDT) – This past August, state legislators passed Senate Bill 1413, authorizing school districts to establish programs aimed at helping teachers and school district employees secure affordable housing. Authored by state Senator Mark Leno, whose district includes San Francisco, the purpose of SB 1413, known as the “Teacher Housing Act of 2016,” is to “facilitate the acquisition, construction, rehabilitation, and preservation of affordable rental housing for teachers and school district employees to allow teachers or school district employees to access and maintain housing stability.” SB 1413 does so by permitting school districts to build rental housing on district-owned property and restricting occupancy in these projects to teachers and school district employees. The bill, supported by teachers’ organizations, the California Apartment Association, and the Non-Profit Housing Association of Northern California, easily passed both the state Senate and Assembly and is now with Governor Jerry Brown for approval. read more.
