California legislators take payoffs from solar energy manufacturers, fire suppression system manufacturers and seismic plate manufacturers to place expensive mandates upon housing in a "one size fits all" set of mandates that add tens of thousands of dollars to the cost of every house and especially impacts smaller, low income homes.... And their solution? More mandates!?!? This is why laws need to be locally produced. If San Francisco has a problem with urban sprawl, why impose mandates on home buyers in Lassen or Placer counties where they don't have the same problem?
