Assemblymember Burke Abandons SB 50 as Co-author

By Preserve LA

State Assemblymember Autumn Burke has withdrawn her co-authorship of controversial Senate Bill 50 by Scott Wiener, which would allow tall luxury apartment buildings to overrun 3,000 neighborhoods in California, from working-class East Los Angeles to middle-class Santa Rosa.

Burke’s withdrawal, confirmed by her office, is a blow to Wiener, coming just a few days before the California senate Governance and Finance Committee votes on whether to back or reject Senate Bill 50.

Wiener, the radical San Francisco legislator who has called single-family homes immoral and blames yards for taking up space that should go to apartment towers, is pushing the unprecedented concept of tearing down thriving working-class and middle-class communities.
