A bill that would repeal California’s law limiting rent control is getting a public hearing on Thursday after languishing in committee for nearly a year. The Costa-Hawkins Act allows landlords to increase rent to market value between tenants and forbids rent control on buildings built after 1995, the year the act was passed. AB 1506, would repeal Costa-Hawkins and could have wide-ranging affects on rental markets statewide. What do you think -- should Costa-Hawkins be repealed? Is rent control the key to overcoming the Bay Area's housing crisis?
