Welcome back to Propositioned! Hosted by KFI's Kris Ankarlo, this limited series podcast is back to take a look at the 11 different propositions you'll see at the ballot box this November 6!
Now in its third season, Propositioned is a chance for both sides on each question to make their case to you, the voter. Then you can take that information with you to the voter booth.
In today's episode of Propositioned, KFI's Kris Ankarlo looks at Prop 10, a measure designed to give local jurisdictions more control over rent control.
Proponents of the measure say it's badly needed in California where rent prices are out of control and costing big bucks.
Opponents say rent control policies violate basic laws of supply and demand.
Get both sides of the story in today's episode of Propositioned!
Here's what the ballot measure says:
Repeals state law that currently restricts the scope of rent control policies that cities and other local jurisdictions may impose on residential property. Fiscal Impact: Potential net reduction in state and local revenues of tens of millions of dollars per year in the long term. Depending on actions by local communities, revenue losses could be less or considerably more.
Here's what a YES vote means:
A YES vote on this measure means: State law would not limit the kinds of rent control laws cities and counties could have.
Here's what a NO vote means:
A NO vote on this measure means: State law would continue to limit the kinds of rent control laws cities and counties could have.
