“This budget is all about economic growth and opportunity,” he said. “Opportunity for everybody. I can have people wanting to move in this state. I can have the best workforce in the world. I can have companies that want to be here. But if there’s not a place for their workers to live, we’re going to be flat as a pancake.”

That housing will be built around metropolitan areas, in downtown spaces and close to railroad stations.
