The legislature must create more affordable housing and forge solutions to end homelessness through a housing first approach that prioritizes prevention, rapid re-housing, and housing stabilization.
Please take a moment to look at the housing bills I have filed this session.

Allow Tax on Sales of Luxury Homes to Build Affordable Housing
S.868, An Act empowering cities and towns to impose a fee on certain real estate transactions to support affordable housing
Lack of affordable housing and homelessness remain major crises, and cities and towns need funds to support the development of affordable housing in their communities. My bill allows cities and towns to choose to levy a local tax on the transfer of luxury houses, with the money generated put into that municipality’s affordable housing trust fund.
