California Proposition 10 - Repeal the Costa-Hawkins Act
Prop 10 will repeal the 1995 Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act, which has effectively banned cities from enacting new rent control for the last 23 years. DSA chapters across the state are enthusiastically supporting Prop 10, both because it will empower local governments to provide immediate relief to working people being forced out of their homes by "market conditions," and because it paves the way for the passage of statewide universal rent control, a crucial reform for anyone that agrees that housing is for everybody.
