Governor Newsom Signs Nation-Leading Rent Relief Program for Low-Income Tenants, Eviction Moratorium Extension

Governor Gavin Newsom today signed legislation to extend the state’s eviction moratorium through September 30, 2021 and clear rent debt for low-income Californians that have suffered economic hardship due to the pandemic. Under AB 832, California will significantly increase cash assistance to low-income tenants and small landlords under the state’s $5.2 billion rent relief program, making it the largest and most comprehensive COVID rental protection and rent relief program of any state in the nation. In an agreement forged between the Governor, the Senate and the Assembly, AB 832 increases the value of the reimbursement the state’s emergency rental assistance program provides to now cover 100 percent of past-due and prospective rent payments, as well as utility bills for income-qualified tenants. AB 832 also allows tenants to access rental funds directly if their landlord chooses not to participate and ensures landlords can receive compensation even if their otherwise income-qualified tenants have already vacated a unit. On Friday, Governor Newsom, Senate President pro Tempore Toni Atkins and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon announced an agreement on the legislation, which also ensures rental assistance dollars stay in California by prioritizing cities and counties with unmet needs and makes temporary reforms to the judicial process to ensure tenants and landlords have attempted to obtain rental assistance. 

The Governor also signed the following bills today: AB 127 by Senator Sydney Kamlager (D-Los Angeles) – Arrest warrants: declaration of probable cause.AB 128 by Assemblymember Philip Ting (D-San Francisco) – Budget Act of 2021.AB 336 by Assemblymember Carlos Villapudua (D-Stockton) – Enhanced infrastructure financing districts: public financing authority: members: joint powers authorities.AB 337 by Assemblymember Jose Medina (D-Riverside) – Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges.AB 341 by Assemblymember Tasha Boerner Horvath (D-Encinitas) – Credibility of witnesses: sexual conduct: social media content.AB 464 by Assemblymember Kevin Mullin (D-South San Francisco) – Enhanced Infrastructure Financing Districts: allowable facilities and projects.AB 761 by Assemblymember Phillip Chen (R-Yorba Linda) – County employees’ retirement: personnel: Orange County.AB 891 by Assemblymember Jordan Cunningham (R-San Luis Obispo) – Contracts: parental consent.AB 1383 by Assemblymember Wendy Carrillo (D-Los Angeles) – Community colleges: academic employees: involuntary administrative leave.AB 1580 by the Committee on Judiciary – Enforcement of money judgments: examination.AB 1581 by the Committee on Local Government – Local government: omnibus.AB 1592 by the Committee on Local Government – Fresno Metropolitan Flood Control District: contracts.SB 79 by Senator Jim Nielsen (R-Red Bluff) – County road commissioner: Counties of Colusa and Glenn.SB 152 by the Committee on Budget and Fiscal Review – Elections.

LA Activist Set to Become the Next Member of the Cal Black Caucus

Antonio Ray Harvey | California Black Media

Gov. Gavin Newsom called Los Angeles community organizer Isaac Bryan on Saturday morning to congratulate him for winning the 54th Assembly District special election.

The Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s office reported that, as of Friday, May 21, Bryan was leading with 50.7% of counted ballots (21,388 votes) over his closest opponent, fellow Democrat Heather Hutt.

Hutt was trailing Bryan with 24.9% (10,489 votes).

Hutt served as the former state director for Kamala Harris when the current Vice President of the United States was California’s junior United States Senator.

Bryan’s projected victory – pending final certification by authorities – would push the California Legislative Black Caucus’s (CLBC) membership back up to 10.

The CLBC – the body of African American elected officials serving in the State Legislature – recently lost two members. In December, Gov. Newsom appointed former Assemblymember Shirley Weber, who represented the 79th District in the San Diego area, California’s 33rd Secretary of State. And last year after the general election, former state Sen. Holly J. Mitchell resigned to serve on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.

The race Bryan won was announced after Sen. Sydney Kamlager (D-Los Angeles) won a special election to represent the 30th District in the upper house of the California Legislature, replacing Mitchell.

“The Governor called this morning. We really did this,” the 29-year-old Bryan posted on his Twitter account, expressing gratitude to Newsom for reaching out to him.

“My name is Isaac Bryan, but my friends call me Mr. Assemblymember- elect,” Bryan tweeted before that in a separate post on May 21.

Bryan’s commanding lead puts him comfortably above
