alternative approach to the 

relief and the opportunity to 

region’s transportation needs 

purchase their homes at an 

other than building the SR 

affordable price,” Portantino

said. “Though I’m 

the de facto end to the threat 

disappointed that we could 

of the 710 tunnel and clears 

not capture every tenant in 

the way for the homes to be 

this bill with a rent freeze, I 


am pleased that those in the 

SB 400 passed the legislature 

most need of help received 

with bipartisan support.
