Senator Scott Wiener is again pursuing changes to statewide zoning laws to encourage the construction of new housing near major transit hubs, after a previous and similar bill failed to make it out of committee.  SB50 would prevent cities from restricting density within a half mile of major transit stops, and raise the height limit for new developments to four stories within a half-mile and five stories within a quarter mile of the hubs.
