The Affordable Housing Act Would Ease the Burden on Renters.

The Affordable Housing Act is a proposed ballot measure that will give local communities the power to adopt rent control necessary to address the state’s housing affordability crisis by repealing the Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act. Costa-Hawkins prevents cities and counties from applying rent control to apartments built after 1995 or to single-family rental units and condos. It also allows landlords to raise the rent as much as they want when a unit becomes vacant.
