Elected in November 2016, Senator Scott Wiener represents District 11 in the California State Senate. District 11 includes all of San Francisco, Broadmoor, Colma, and Daly City, as well as portions of South San Francisco.
In the Senate, Senator Wiener works to make housing more affordable, invest in our transportation systems, increase access to healthcare, support working families, meaningfully address climate change and the impacts of drought, reform our criminal justice system, reduce gun violence, reduce California’s alarmingly high poverty rate, and safeguard and expand the rights of all communities, including immigrants and the LGBT community.
During his term in the Senate to date, Senator Wiener has passed 26 bills that were signed into law. Among those bills are SB 35, a landmark bill to streamline housing approvals in cities not meeting their housing goals; SB 822, which enacts the strongest net neutrality protections in the nation; SB 1045, which expands and strengthens California’s conservatorship laws to help individuals who are living on our streets with severe mental health and substance use disorders; SB 700, which significantly expands access to renewable energy; and SB 923, which modernizes California’s eyewitness identification standards to ensure innocent people are not sent to prison.
