Sen. Scott Wiener’s revamped housing density bill, SB 50, puts more of the onus on “job rich” suburbs to build new housing, making it more palatable to the City’s Planning Commission and others who pushed back on his first bill, for putting too much pressure on urban areas to build.  Some critics remain concerned that bill could weaken tenant and affordable housing advocates’ ability to bargain with developers.
