On October 11, 2023, California Governor Newsom signed AB 548! Sponsored by RAMP and Authored by Tasha Boerner, AB 548 will introduce a proactive element to complaint-based code enforcement. The bill will require code enforcement officers to inspect additional units at a multi-family property if they find severe violations in one unit that they reasonably expect could be found in other units, such as plumbing problems, mold, pests, and lead hazards. See our fact sheet for more details including a list of supporters.
