Housing and Transportation

The LABC Institute is building on the Los Angeles Business Council’s decade-long work focused on the housing affordability gap in Los Angeles County, where inadequate public transportation and a lack of affordable workplace housing have worsened traffic congestion and harmed business’ ability to recruit and retain workers. The LABC’s Housing Scorecard has detailed the scope of the region’s housing crisis and offered constructive policy proposals to help employers meet the housing and transportation needs of our region. The LABC was also an early supporter of Measure R, a half-cent sales tax approved by Los Angeles County voters in 2008 to provide additional funding for transit projects.
