Next attempt at Costa Hawkins reform is now live:

AB36 would allow cities to extend rent control to new housing after 10 years. Costa Hawkins currently prevents any new rent controlled units after 1995

Last session, tenant organizations protested the previous version, which was a full repeal. Because the American Left is a failed project. This new version already got the blessing of the CA Apartment Association back then, so maybe we'll pass something this time around.


Specifically, Tenants Together and numerous costal DSA chapters protested the bills author for not having introduced it fast enough. Which to me is like shaming your friend that it took them so long to understand your arguments. Imho we should be welcoming support when it comes, not shoving it away only because it came late. But that's just me, an organizer.
