2024 RENT CONTROL BALLOT INITIATIVES
The AIDS Healthcare Foundation - directed by Michael Weinstein - has once again qualified a statewide ballot initiative for the November 2024 election to limit rent increases to 5% regardless of CPI, inflation, or our housing crisis.
In 2018 & 2020, the campaigns to defeat Propositions 10 & 21 cost $80 million - each.
Meanwhile, the City of Santa Ana is considering its own ballot initiative in November 2024 that would make its current rent control law part of the city charter - and require a 2/3 city council majority to change the law.
If placed on the ballot, Santa Ana’s initiative will likely cost over $1 million to defeat!!!
