Editorial: Why California Legislature should kill rent control bill
Economists agree rent control doesn’t work and will only exacerbate the housing crisis

California voters made their views on rent control clear last November when they rejected Proposition 10 by nearly 20 percentage points.

Apparently Gov. Gavin Newsom and Assemblyman David Chiu, D-San Francisco, didn’t get the message.
