California State Issues

Repeal Costa-Hawkins

SUPPORT the Repeal of Costa Hawkins : 1837. (17-0041) 
Expands Local Governments’ Authority to Enact Rent Control on Residential Property. Initiative Statute.
Summary Date: 12/27/17 | Circulation Deadline: 06/25/18 | Signatures Required: 365,880
Michael Weinstein, Elena Popp, and Christina Livingston c/o Fredric D. Woocher and Beverly Grossman Palmer fwoocher@strumwooch.com, bpalmer@strumwooch.com (310) 576-1233

Repeals state law that currently restricts the scope of rent-control policies that cities and other local jurisdictions may impose. Allows policies that would limit the rental rates that residential-property owners may charge for new tenants, new construction, and single-family homes. In accordance with California law, provides that rent-control policies may not violate landlords’ right to a fair financial return on their rental property. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local government: Unknown, but potentially significant, changes in state and local government tax revenues. Net decrease more likely than net increase. Potential increase in local government costs of up to tens of millions of dollars per year in the long term, likely paid by fees on owners of rental housing. (17-0041.)

For inspiration watch the Small Business Commissioners reaction to the RPP presentation here. Go to Item 7:  http://sanfrancisco.granicus.com/MediaPlayer.php?view_id=45&clip_id=25585 The Commissioners’ comments start around (03:07:35).

Adopt a Pothole: Simply complaining about the potholes doesn’t work. Adopt a pothole and make it your mission to get it fixed. Take a picture. Make note of the address. File a report on it with DPW using the Mayor’s 311 complaint system. You may also call 311 and speak to an operator but this can be time-consuming. It is easier to file a complaint online http://sf311.org to get it entered into the record. All feedback is linked to the 311 system and offers you a referral number, which you can use to check on the status of your pothole. Use that system and report back on your progress.
