bill text

This legislation would prohibit local governments from constraining the establishment or operation of maternity supportive housing residences or from placing any occupancy requirements on such residences which would not also apply to a single family living in the residence. Maternity supportive housing residences would be defined by the legislation as residential homes or houses operated by a nonprofit which allow up to six pregnant women aged 18 years or older and their children to reside in the premises for up to 18 months after childbirth. No other services other than housing would be allowed to be provided and such housing would have to be in compliance with all residential building codes.
