The campaign to end the Costa Hawkins Rental Housing Act that has restricted rent control measures in the state and allow the expansion of rent control oversight to single family residences is on the ballot for this November and we vigorously oppose the measure.

CBPA serves as a Co-Chair of the “No on Prop. 10” campaign and is actively participating in the management and direction of the effort. Fundraising is the key component now as polling indicates if we can deliver our message with the right messengers the effort can be defeated.

This proposition is bigger than just residential rent control and presents and existential threat to your businesses. If Prop. 10 passes in November it only takes 41 votes in the Assembly and 21 votes in the Senate with the signature of the Governor to overturn the current prohibition of commercial rent control in California that we helped codify in the late 80’s.

If Prop 10 passes there will be commercial rent control almost immediately in most major cities in California.

BOMA Members are invited to attend the City Council Hearing on September 4th at 5 p.m. at City Hall to voice your opposition to this measure. For more information contact Julia@BOMASacramento.org.
