1. The Oakland City Council may expand rent control to owner-occupied duplexes and triplexes in the city, reports Ali Tadayon of the East Bay Times$. The proposal, authored by Councilmembers Dan Kalb and Noel Gallo, is scheduled to be heard by a council committee next week. In November, Oakland residents voted to extend just cause eviction protections to owner-occupied duplexes and triplexes.
2. Gov. Gavin Newsom announced sweeping youth incarceration reform, saying he plans to “shift control of the state’s Juvenile Justice Division away from corrections officials to government health and human services providers, a move he called long overdue and necessary to build on past efforts to divert children and teens from a path to prison,” reports Jazmine Ulloa of the LA Times$.
