26 Jan Landlords we need your help!
Please see this important message we received from the AAGLA (Apartment Association of Greater Los Angeles)
“Dear AAGLA Members,
Immediate action needed to stop
SB 184, the bill to reauthorize
RENT CONTROL in California!!
Though defeated last June, the measure has been allowed to be heard again by the full Senate Thursday, January 26.
Calls, faxes needed to Los Angeles-based
State Senators today!
What SB 184 Does
The bill overturns a court case that affirmed California’s now 16-year-old law, Costa-Hawkins, prohibiting rent control on newly constructed apartment units. The result would be an insidious new form of rent control – capping rents on units for as long as 55 years! The bill’s author, Senator Mark Leno (D-San Francisco) is attempting to disguise his intent by saying SB 184 simply means the politically popular “inclusionary zoning” program can be used for new rental housing. But, we’re not fooled – by any other name rent control is still rent control and, unless SB 184 is defeated, rent control will return to California!!
Immediate action needed!
Please contact BY FAX or BY PHONE the four
Los Angeles-based State Senators (see below) immediately
and ask them to VOTE NO on SB 184.
- Submit a letter via fax, using the attached sample letter.
- Or, call theirSacramento offices and simply say “Tell the legislator to VOTE NO on SB 184!”
- Forward this message to your friends and colleagues.
