The Senate Housing and Land Use Committee Records consist of 24 cubic feet of records including records under both committee
names, the Senate Housing and Urban Affairs Committee and the Senate Housing and Land Use Committee. The records reflect the
activity of the committee in overseeing legislation and other matters affecting housing issues, community redevelopment, and
land use. The records cover the years 1977-1998, with the bulk from 1983-1998. They are composed of bill files, hearing files,
and correspondence files.
The Standing Rules of the Senate created the Senate Housing and Urban Affairs Committee in 1983. Initially the seven members
of the new Housing and Urban Affairs Committee considered "Bills related to housing, community development, codes and standards,
fair housing, foreclosure, housing finances, manufactured housing, housing element, and the Subdivision Map Act" (California
Legislature at Sacramento, 1983, p. 95). In 1995 the committee name changed to Senate Housing and Land Use Committee to consider
"Bills relating to housing and land use" (California Legislature at Sacramento, 1995, p. 103).
