California is experiencing an emerging lower income housing crisis which is aggravated by exclusionary land use regulations. This result occurs as California housing policy approaches a critical decisionmaking point before both the legislature and the judiciary. The author analyzes pending legislation, current statutes, and decisional law, including the recent Livermore case, regarding exclusionary land use regulations. The author concludes that continued resistance to inclusionary housing policy is intolerable and that the Livermore opinion can be applied so that lower income households are not denied equal access to affordable housing
