Governor Kate Brown to Sign Housing Bills into Law
Governor Kate Brown will sign four housing bills into law at 2 p.m. tomorrow, August 8. She will be joined by housing advocates from across the state to celebrate the progress made on addressing Oregon’s housing crisis this legislative session.
The Governor will sign SB 5512, the budget for Oregon Housing and Community Services Department, representing historic and transformative investments in housing solutions; HB 2001, which allows for increased density in single family neighborhoods; HB 2003, requiring state agencies to conduct regional housing needs analyses and local housing production strategies; and HB 2006, resources for domestic and sexual violence survivors and low-income families seeking housing.
“This session, we committed to significant investments that will help every Oregon family have a warm, safe, and dry place to call home,” said Governor Brown. “No one single solution will address our housing crisis, and this legislation tackles the whole spectrum of issues, from homelessness, to stable rental housing, to increasing home ownership.”
