    California cities face $600K fines if they break state housing law in Newsom’s budget deal

    BY SOPHIA BOLLAG

    California will punish cities and counties that don’t meet their housing goals under a deal Gov. Gavin Newsom and legislative leaders announced Thursday.

    If a court finds that a city or county violates a state law that sets targets for how much housing a community must plan to build, the fines could range from $10,000 to $600,000 per month, according to the bill language published Thursday.

    Local governments would have a year to comply before the fines kick in after a court finds them in violation of the law. The fines would increase over time if the local government remains out of compliance.

    After six months of fines, the court could take over a local government’s authority over its housing plans.

    With so much land under government thumb, now demanding private developers to build.
    A larger government forcing their rules on smaller government.
    How will this play out?
