“This legislation will help bring some peace of mind and predictability to renters, allowing them to plan for their future and stay in their homes,” [Asm. David] Chiu said in a statement.
“The rental housing industry just opposes rent caps,” [Apt. Association lobbyist Deb} Carlton said. “That’s who we are. That’s how it is. It’s going to be tough [to pass legislation] given what just happened with Prop. 10. But they’re not giving up. And we’ll certainly engage.”
“There is an understanding on both sides of this issue that the crisis has not, is not and will not go away until we act in various ways,” [Asm. Richard] Bloom said.
“[I]t is increasingly clear that lawmakers can’t address the real-time pain and upheaval caused by the state’s housing crisis without strengthening tenant protections.”
Bill action is still relatively light this week. Expect an onslaught of bill hearings shortly. Budget committees are working through department budgets. Floors meet Monday and Thursday
