Sacramento County Ca

December 3, 2004 | From Associated Press
Sacramento County has adopted one of the most aggressive affordable-housing policies in the nation, requiring developers to set aside 15% of all construction in unincorporated areas for low-income residents. The policy, adopted by county supervisors Wednesday and set to take effect next month over developers' objections, is expected to provide about 300 affordable houses and apartments a year in the fast-growing and increasingly expensive region.

The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors reversed itself this week and voted to offer domestic partnership benefits to the county's 14,000 employees. The 3-2 decision Tuesday came when Supervisor Muriel Johnson announced a change of heart after hearing stories of county employees who faced hardships because their partners did not have insurance. Previously, a majority of supervisors had opposed the move, citing potential increased costs and opposition to recognizing same-sex unions.
