AB 1024, An Act to Facilitate Cooperative Ownership of Housing in California

The Sustainable Economies Law Center, the California Center for Cooperative Development, the Bay Area Community Land Trust and other organizations in the cooperative movement have proposed a bill to remove legal barriers to developing co-op housing in California!

AB 1024 was introduced by California State Assemblymember Norma Torres in February, 2013. The bill passed with overwhelming support through various legislative committees in the spring and summer, however, due to unforeseen events, AB 1024 has been gutted and turned into a completely separate bill. We at SELC and our partner organizations in this campaign are shocked and upset but we’re not giving up! We at SELC, our partner organizations and political advisers will be putting our heads together this fall to ensure a smooth passage of our co-op housing bill in the California State Legislature next year.
