C.A.R. OPPOSES UNLESS AMENDED AB 1482 (Chiu), which creates a very restrictive statewide rent cap and burdensome “just cause” eviction standards. C.A.R. had reached an agreement with the sponsors and the bill’s author to make reasonable amendments to remove C.A.R.’s opposition. The consensus language would have promoted tenant protections and protected property ownership. However, because our consensus language was not incorporated into the bill, C.A.R. is opposing AB 1482.
