Description
The Senate Housing and Community Development Committee is the most recent Senate committee to oversee bills concerning housing and community development. The Senate Housing and Community Development Committee Records consist of 5.5 cubic feet of textual and audiovisual records organized into the records series: Bill Files, Hearing Files, and Chronological Correspondence from the 1999-2000, 2001-2002 and 2003-2004 sessions. The records reflect the activity of the committee in overseeing legislation and other matters affecting housing issues and community development.
Background
The Senate Housing and Community Development Committee is the most recent Senate committee to oversee bills concerning housing and community development. The first committee that had housing under its purview was the Senate Housing and Urban Affairs Committee, which considered "bills related to housing, community development, codes and standards, fair housing, foreclosure, housing finances, manufactured housing, housing element, and the Subdivision Map Act" (SR11, introduced in January 1983). In 1995 the committee's name changed to the Senate Housing and Land Use Committee and its scope broadened to consider "bills relating to housing and land use" (SR8, introduced in December 1994).
