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.
