SCRHA Stalls Several Rental Housing Bills, Focus Remains on Dangerous Proposals
As with every legislative session, SCRHA’s advocacy and the voices of our members has helped stop several terrible rental housing bills early on. SB 460 (Wahab) which would interfere with criminal background screening is now a 2-year bill and AB 1317 (Carrillo) which would have required the unbundling of parking at rental properties has been pulled by the author. The author of AB 1086 (McCarty) also pulled a bill that would have allowed the CA Civil Rights Department an exemption to the laws prohibiting eavesdropping and recording communications when investigating fair housing complaints. SCRHA is still working hard to stop SB 466 (Wahab) that would do away with vital protections against overreaching rent control and SB 567 (Durazo) that seeks to lower the existing rent cap and further restrict no-fault just cause termination. SCRHA advocates will be in Sacramento on April 26 to further lobby on your behalf.
