Bill Freezes Rents on 
Caltrans SR 710 Homes 

Governor Jerry Brown 
signed a state bill Monday 
that requires Caltrans to 
freeze the rent of its tenants 
who participate in the 
“Affordable Rent Program” 
until January 1, 2020. The 
bill, SB 400, was authored by 
Senator Anthony Portantino. 

 “I would like to thank 
Governor Brown for signing 
this important district bill. 
SB 400 will provide longstanding 
tenants financial 
relief and the opportunity to 
purchase their homes at an 
affordable price,” Portantino 
said. “Though I’m 
disappointed that we could 
not capture every tenant in 
this bill with a rent freeze, I 

am pleased that those in the 
most need of help received 

 Earlier this year, the LA 
County Metropolitan 
Transportation Authority(MTA) voted on a measure 
that recommends an 
alternative approach to 
the region’s transportation 
needs other than building 
the SR 710 tunnel. MTA’s 
action is the de facto end to 
the threat of the 710 tunnel 
and clears the way for the 
homes to be sold. 
SB 400 passed the legislature 
with bipartisan support. 
The bill was supported by 
the mayors of Los Angeles, 
Pasadena and South
