The last time the landlords wrote a proposition for us here in California it permanently broke local services and education in this state and left homeowners paying for it. We’ve got a bigger problem now: Prop. 98.
Prop. 98 kills all rent control, removes many of California’s protections for tenants, repeals environmental rules, and trashes public water projects.
For a more detailed summary with arguments for and against the proposition, Smart Voter has a Proposition 98 page and links to the actual law.
