With rents rising and vacancy rates low, California is facing a deep housing crisis.
The situation has spurred some lawmakers to seize the moment in Sacramento, taking the opportunity of a difficult vote for Governor Brown's signature cap-and-trade program to leverage support for affordable housing goals.
Update: California legislative leaders announced late Monday a vote expected on a package of affordable housing measures is being delayed until after the August recess.
To talk about what's at stake amidst the Sacramento deal-making, Take Two welcomed Matt Schwartz, President and CEO of the California Housing Partnership Corporation. The advocacy group provides research and information to lawmakers around housing finance.
