As Rent Control Debate Heats Up, Steinberg Proposes Alternative Solutions
The battle over rent control in the state and in Sacramento is heating up.
A local housing coalition is pushing for rent control and just cause in the city, while five industry groups have announced opposition to the measure. There's also a campaign across the state to repeal a decades-old law that limits where local governments can enact rent control.
Volunteers are already collecting signatures to get a rent control related initiative on the California ballot in November.
