According to State Senator Bob Wieckowski (D - Fremont), the author of SB 1069, "[r]emoving the most egregious obstacles to building these units will help to increase the supply of affordable housing in California and allow more people to remain in the communities they call home.... SB 1069 returns more power to homeowners and reins in some of the enormous fees and requirements levied by local agencies."
