Sacramento, California – Responding to a request from the City of Glendale, Senator Anthony J. Portantino (D–La Cañada Flintridge) has introduced SB 521 & SB 532.  If passed and signed, both bills will help the city with affordable housing pressures.  SB 532 is of particular importance to Senator Portantino as he voted against the dissolution of Redevelopment agencies while he was in the Assembly.  His independent vote caused him to be punished for sticking up for Glendale’s laudable Redevelopment work.
