SUBJECT:
Title
REPORT ON STATUS OF ASSEMBLY BILL NO. 2782 RELATING TO PROTECTIONS FOR RESIDENTS DISPLACED BY MOBILE HOME PARK CLOSURES (CITY COUNCIL)

Body
I. SUMMARY

The City Council wishes to ensure the maximum possible protection under the law for its residents living in mobilehome parks, including with respect to the rights and benefits afforded to residents displaced by mobilehome park closures. On that topic, Assembly Bill ("AB") No. 705 was introduced in the State Assembly in 2019. The bill would have greatly strengthened protections for mobilehome park residents faced with potential park closures, but the bill as drafted was lengthy and confusing, and it stalled in the Assembly in 2019 and became a two-year bill.
In early 2020, the City Council directed the City Attorney's office to become actively involved in drafting a modified and streamlined version of AB 705 that would facilitate the passage of its essential protections into law by the end of the 2019-2020 legislative session. Pursuant to that direction, the City Attorney's office participated in drafting AB 2782, which was introduced in the Assembly in February of 2020.
The City Attorney's office remains actively involved in helping ensure passage of the bill, which recently passed the Assembly's Housing and Community Development Committee, a major hurdle. The bill has now been referred to the Assembly Appropriations Committee, where it will be heard on June 2 or June 3, 2020. If AB 2782 passes the Appropriations Committee, it will be brought to the full Assembly for consideration on the Assembly floor on or about the week of June 15, 2020. If it passes the Assembly vote, it would then need to be approved by the State Senate and signed by the Governor to be passed into law.
