SPEAKER:  Toni G. Atkins
Senator - California State Senate District 39

PROGRAM:  "California Legislative Initiatives on Housing and Infrastructure"

In September, California lawmakers tackled one of their signature issues with a sweeping package of bills to address the state's crippling housing costs. The bills are expected to raise billions of dollars to help finance the construction of thousands of new homes for the state's low-income residents and to ease local regulations on home building to help middle-class Californians who are now overwhelmed by costs.

Three measures, Senate Bills 2, 3 and 35, comprise the key parts of the housing deal. Under SB 2 authored by Senator Atkins, those refinancing their homes or filing other real estate documents -- aside from home and commercial property sales -- will pay a starting fee of $75 with a maximum of $225 per transaction. The measure is expected to raise about $250 million a year to finance the construction of affordable housing.

SB 3 places a bond measure on the November 2018 statewide ballot with $3 billion set aside to also finance low-income development, and an additional $1 billion for veterans' home loans. SB 35 would require cities and counties to limit environmental, planning and other reviews on residential developments in cities that aren't meeting their housing needs.

Bio:

Elected to the State Senate in 2016 after serving as Speaker of the California State Assembly, Senator Toni G. Atkins represents the 39th Senate District, which includes the cities of San Diego, Coronado, Del Mar and Solana Beach.

Prior to state elective office, Senator Atkins worked as director of clinic services at Womancare Health Center and later as a member of the San Diego City Council.

Under her leadership, the Assembly Democrats championed the state's first Earned Income Tax Credit, which benefits nearly 1.5 million Californians. She also provided budget funding to help provide more affordable housing, one of the state's biggest crises and the issue that is closest to her heart.

As Speaker, she helped stop the University of California from imposing a 27 percent tuition increase on students; was a leader in negotiating a $7.5-billion water bond that provides clean, safe drinking water and makes improvements to the state's water system; helped ensure California's financial stability through a Rainy Day Fund; aided in finding a solution to the chronic underfunding of the State Teachers Retirement System; and led the passage of two on-time, balanced budgets.

Toni Atkins is a coalition builder who believes that sound government policies can impact people's lives in positive ways. During her tenure as Speaker, funding for higher education in California reached its highest-ever level. In addition to being a leading voice for affordable housing, she is a powerful advocate for women and the LGBT community and a champion for veterans and individuals and families experiencing homelessness.

While Speaker, Toni Atkins passed legislation that helps small businesses, preserves dignity for transgender individuals, protects wildlife, assists victims of domestic violence, protects our environment, ensures coastal access, and strengthens family justice centers, among other accomplishments.

Senator Atkins was born in Virginia and earned her bachelor's degree in political science from Emory & Henry College and completed the senior executive program at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. She lives in the South Park/Golden Hill community of San Diego with her spouse Jennifer LeSar and their dogs, Haley and Joey.
