SB 50 didn’t pass. But California is still considering these housing bills.

The California Senate voted to reject Senate Bill 50 last week, ending (at least temporarily) a high-profile debate about housing development and density.

That heated conversation has taken center stage at the state capitol since Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) unveiled SB 827, a more dramatic predecessor to the more recent bill, two years ago.

But the housing issue isn’t going away.
