Senators Todd Young (R-IN) and Brian Schatz (D-HI) reintroduced the Yes In My Backyard (YIMBY) Act, a bill aimed at removing discriminatory zoning policies and burdensome regulations that hinder housing and community development. The bill (S. 1688) requires Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) recipients to report on their land use policies and submit plans for implementing policies in ways that benefit the jurisdiction, including encouraging high-density zoning, allowing manufactured homes in communities, reducing minimum lot sizes and allowing single-room occupancy development where there is multifamily housing. It further requires explanations for community decisions not to adopt such policies to maintain transparency. A companion bill (H.R. 3507) was introduced in the House by Representatives Brittany Pettersen (D-CO), Derek Kilmer (D-WA), Mike Flood (R-NE) and Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO).
