Victory at the Capitol, AB 2351 Fails Passage in Assembly Housing

AB 2351 was defeated in the Assembly Housing Committee on April 27, 2016, with 3 ayes, 2 noes and 2 not voting.

Thank you WMA members for your more than 175 individual letters asking for a no vote for the repeal of Civil Code Section 798.17 providing for long term leases exempt from rent control. While there is a chance the bill may be brought up again in future weeks for another vote, AB 2351 by Roger Hernandez is facing an uphill battle.
