Thanks To Our Panelist For Representing Our Association to Our State Legislators

Our GAOR representatives drove home two important issues, which C.A.R. supports, in regard to housing: Greg Astorian, GAOR Government Affairs Director Panel Facilitator Eddie Manisian SB6:  State Senate Bill An act to amend Section 65913.4 of, and to add and repeal Section 65852.23 of, the Government Code, relating to land use.

You Can Help Shape Glendale’s Future
