Thank you to all of you who filed Witness Slips, contacted your Legislators, etc., on the issue of Rent Control... THE MESSAGE GOT THROUGH - THE BILLS FAILED TO PROGRESS OUT OF COMMITTEE. This is a BIG Win for Everyone!
Celebrate for a moment, but keep telling people about why Rent Control is bad for everyone. The proponents are intent on getting this through, so we don't know when, where, or how they will try next, but we need to stay vigilant and prepared. The more of our legislators who understand what bad policy it is, the easier it will be to stop it in the future. If your legislators have helped sponsor these bills, see if you can talk to them. Talk to them about some of the articles about it on our website, and the "91 Ways…" list. If you can't get their "ear", send them the articles and the list anyway.
Thanks for your support,
