Rent control measure

Groups are joining together to fight against a rent control ballot proposition. California builders are partnering with the California NAACP against Proposition 10, which would allow California cities to expand rent control.

Currently, properties built after 1995 are exempt. Prop. 10 would do away with that exemption, and all properties could be placed under rent control.

The group says Prop. 10 will create unelected, local rental boards and commissions to impose new rent control regulations and fees.

Opponents are also concerned the measure would cause rental owners to convert their properties into ownership housing, such as condos. Supporters of the measure say tenants need immediate relief from outrageous rent increases.
