The 18 member, regionwide board of local law, business and tech leaders have voted to support a non binding, regional suite of Statehouse bills to address the region's housing crisis, including Senator Scott Weiner's controversial SB 50 housing near transit bill, a newer version of SB 827 which failed last term. Some members, including Supervisor Rafael Mandelman, ultimately voted against the compact, citing concerns over too much of a loss of local control.
