Once again, California voters have decided not expanded rent control in the state. In Tuesday’s election, voters rejected Proposition 21. Had it passed, the measure would have allowed local jurisdictions to expand rent control or create new rent control laws on almost all housing types. It was widely opposed by the commercial real estate community as well as Governor Gavin Newsom. According to data from The Associated Press, the proposition received only 40% of the votes, although ballots are still being counted.
