Chris Daly to the Rescue!

New, 22 comments

Supe Chris Daly's proposing a package of laws that would give renters a warm hug in these cold and dire times: "The proposals include the suspension of any rent increases that would cause a tenant's rent to exceed one-third of their income; expansion of the rights of tenants who want to add roommates to help pay their rent; and limiting the amount of 'banked' rent increases -- where annual rent increases allowed under city laws are saved up and then imposed at one time -- to 8 percent." No reactions from landlords yet, but here's a choice quote from in the comments: "OH MY GAWD THIS IS NOT THE SOVIET UNION." Hey there. The caps lock is a privilege, not a right. [City Insider]
