it explicitly gives tenant associations the legal right to enact a 30 day rent strike upon a vote of the association. after that, the landlord has 21 days to respond with what they'll do to address the grievance that led to the strike. if they don't meet, they forfeit the withheld rent for the month. it also gives you a bulletproof defense against an eviction proceeding by pointing out the landlord violated this law.

Minneapolis does it better. Rather live in a Bender Box than a Wienerville.

Better Wienervilles than NIMBYvilles.
