A tenant with "a disability related to mobility" can seek to be moved to a first-floor unit under a bill co-sponsored by the City of Santa Monica that was signed into law Wednesday.

AB 1620 authored by Assemblymember Rick Chavez Zbur (D), whose District includes Santa Monica, was one of 56 bills signed by California Governor Gavin Newsom that aim to fast-track new housing construction and bolster tenant protections.
