California Rent-Cutting Bill Postponed

via Connect Media

California AB 828, a bill that would authorize the California courts to cut rents by 25%, won’t get a hearing until at least the summer. The bill landed in the Senate Rules Committee last week, which means any possibility of a hearing will be postponed for several weeks.

The California Apartment Association led a grassroots campaign to defeat the measure. In recent weeks, more than 55,000 messages opposing the bill have flooded lawmakers’ inboxes.
