Gimme Shelter Podcast: We have a package (with Assemblyman Brian Maienschein)

We have a housing package! It’s such big news, we’re breaking it into two mega-pods: This week dedicated to the politics behind the package, and next week to its crucial policy details. Matt and Liam discuss the late-night drama at the Capitol (6:50), Asm. Marc Levine as YIMBY heel (9:30), the broad political forces that aligned this year for a deal (17:00), and what to look for next year in housing policy (24:00). Then, an interview with Assemblyman Brian Maienschein (R-San Diego) (32:30), the sole Republican to vote for a crucial housing bill.
