ACLU and others back Housing Bill
Voters could soon be asked to make housing a fundamental human right in California. A Bill ACA 10, would send a message to the legilsalture and cities and counties. The ACLU is among the bill's sponsors. They say California has the second-highest rent in the nation, and most low-income households pay more than half of their small incomes to housing. Meanwhile, subsidized housing vouchers are available to only one in four eligible households. If successful in both houses of the legislature, it would then go to voters in order to update the state's constitution.
