"The Planning and Zoning Law requires a city or county to adopt a general plan for land use development within its boundaries that includes specified mandatory elements, including a housing element. That law requires, after the legislative body of the city or county has adopted all or part of a general plan, that the planning agency provide by April 1 of each year an annual report to the legislative body, the Office of Planning and Research, and the Department of Housing and Community Development that includes specified information.

"This bill would require that this report additionally include the relationship between jobs and housing, including any imbalance between jobs and housing. The bill would require that this portion of the report include an assessment of any significant increases or decreases in employment since the date of the last annual report."
