STEVEN GLAZER, Senator from the 7th Senate District: I want to thank the senator from Chino, her counterpart in the Assembly, the Assembly member from Long Beach, Governor Newsom and the stakeholders who worked hard on this issue over the last few weeks.

Senator Steven Glazer made remarks on the Senate floor regarding Senate Bill 336. The following is a full transcript of those remarks.


STEVEN GLAZER, Senator from the 7th Senate District: I regrettably rise in opposition to this bill today. First I want to thank my colleague, the senator from Napa, for raising a very important issue, which is the disruption that this technology is doing to many people who have employment in this field. There's nobody on this floor who has a bigger heart than the senator from Napa for the, the impact that that technology is having and his bill reflects that concern that he rightfully has.

Senator Steven Glazer made remarks on the Senate floor regarding Assembly Bill 134. The following is a full transcript of those remarks.


STEVEN GLAZER, Senator from the 7th Senate District: There are many valuable projects in this bill but the measure also includes two provisions that while well-intentioned are in my view short-sighted. Both were inserted into this bill at the last minute with no policy hearings, no chance for members to amend the bill without killing everything else in the proposal.

Senator Steven Glazer made remarks on the Senate floor regarding Assembly Bill 1507. The following is a full transcript of those remarks.


STEVEN GLAZER, Senator from the 7th Senate District: Thank You Mr. President and members and I'm sorry to say again that we're kind of back in the same place we were earlier in the week and talking about charter schools versus talking about the broader challenges facing our education system. And once again it certainly puts me in conflict with the bill that's before you.

Senator Glazer made remarks on the Senate floor regarding the rent control component of Assembly Bill 1482. The following is a full transcript of those remarks.


STEVEN GLAZER, Senator from the 7th Senate District: As it has been said by a number of speakers earlier a severe shortage of housing in California is causing rents to rise to levels that are no longer affordable for a large share of our population. This bill promises to slow those increases and prevent unjust evictions, but in my view rent control is not the answer to our housing shortage. While it may be needed in an emergency it might make things worse over the long run.

 

Rent control almost by definition makes the things we need most, construction of new rental housing, less likely than it would otherwise be.  Anytime you reduce the rate of return on an investment you make that investment less attractive and this is true even if new investment is exempted for 15 years as this bill does.

Senator Glazer speaking on the Senate floor regarding Assembly Bill 2923 on August 23, 2018. This is a full transcript of those remarks.


Members earlier, earlier this year I went with my County on the homeless counts in Contra Costa County. And on that early morning hour we stopped at a park in Martinez and there I met Dina and John who were living in their car. And I talked to them about their circumstances and they explained to me that their rent had been raised almost 80% in the past year and they couldn't afford it and they had no choice but to leave their apartment and to live in their car with their cat. And they were there at that park in Martinez that very cold winter morning to get some hot coffee and some cereal and some juice that was being provided by a Good Samaritan who would provide that a couple days a week along with a prayer.

Senator Steven Glazer made remarks on the Senate floor regarding Assembly Bill 5. The following is a full transcript of those remarks.


STEVEN GLAZER, Senator from the 7th Senate District: I rise in support of Assembly Bill 5. I want to thank all the people involved, the author, leadership that put in so much time to bring the bill that's before us today, but in all honesty I do so reluctantly. Unlike what many of you have heard, this bill is not about changing the laws that govern the relationship between employers and their independent contractors. That was done by the Dynamex decision more than a year ago.
