Governor Gavin Newsom is set to deliver his State of the State Address one year into the pandemic; we preview what to expect Tuesday night. Housing also continues to be a key issue in California, and the market only got hotter during the pandemic. Some cities, including Sacramento, are looking to end single-family exclusive zoning in an effort to open up more housing options; we’ll hear from a couple of CapRadio reporters and their sources about the highly controversial issue.
