Rent Control at Risk

Los Angeles has 626,600 rent-controlled units, but a plan to change all that will appear on the June ballot. The California Property Owners and Farmland Protection Act (Prop 98) deals primarily with eminent domain issues, but a provision would phase out rent-control for the state, impacting some 1.2 million renters. Patt talks with advocates and detractors of the proposal and asks KPCC's renters and landlords what they think.
