Your Call Election Special: Proposition 10 debate & the future of rent control in California

Sep 5, 2018

Every Wednesday through Election Day on November 6th, Rose Aguilar will host a special second hour of Your Call at 11am focusing on California's crucial races, propositions, and regional measures.

This week, we’ll host a debate about Proposition 10, which would repeal the 1995 Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act. Costa-Hawkins prevents local governments from expanding rent control laws. We'll also discuss the history Costa-Hawkins and find out what is being done to ease the state's housing affordability crisis.

Guests:

Shanti Singh, communications and development coordinator at Tenants Together

Debra Carlton, senior vice president of public affairs of the California Apartment Association

Noah Arroyo, assistant editor at San Francisco Public Press
