ACTION ALERT : Rally to save Costa-Hawkins & defeat rent control in Long Beach on Monday
At our December 2017 BizFed Board meeting we took official steps to oppose efforts to repeal Costa-Hawkins and received early warnings on local rent control efforts for the November 2018 election. Costa–Hawkins is a California state law, enacted in 1995, which places limits on municipal rent control ordinances. Costa–Hawkins prohibits cities from establishing rent control over certain kinds of residential units and prohibits local cities from establishing new rent control policies.
Long Beach is one of those cities (Pasadena and Inglewood are others) where efforts are being made to establish rent control using the ballot box. A local opportunity to stop these efforts will take place this Monday at 5:30pm where Johanna Cunningham, Apartment Association of Southern California is organizing a strategy meeting to inform and mobilize the business community to defeat these efforts in the City of Long Beach.
LONG BEACH RENT CONTROL RALLY
