There was so much housing news in Gov. Gavin Newsom’s first budget proposal that Matt and Liam couldn’t wait a week to talk about it. We don’t get to everything Newsom wants to do, but we analyze some of the bigger developments, including:
* The unprecedented infusion of housing cash
* A looming crackdown on cities who don’t meet their housing goals
* Newsom’s comments on Senator Scott Wiener’s attempt to strip cities of their zoning power around public transportation.

We’ll be back next week with a deeper analysis and interviews.
