Sacramento may emerge as a battleground in the rent control debate after experiencing some of the largest rent increases in the nation.
Housing advocates have filed paperwork with the city of Sacramento indicating they intend to collect signatures for a November ballot measure that would cap annual rent hikes on older apartments at 5 percent. The measure also would require landlords to provide thousands of dollars in financial assistance to tenants evicted for certain reasons and create a nine-member elected housing board that would set maximum rent increases each year.
