No Vote on Rent Control

California rejected Proposition 21 which would have permitted stricter rent control laws.

Proposition 21 was opposed by 59.8% of the voters, according to the state’s unofficial election tally Wednesday morning.

“Yet again, California voters clearly understood the negative impacts Prop. 21 would have had on the availability of affordable housing in our state by clearly rejecting this radical ballot measure,” Tom Bannon, chief executive of the California Apartment Assn., said in a statement.

“It is now time to move from ballot-box battles and enact policies through the Legislature that allow the state to build more affordable housing that will once again make California an affordable place to live for our families.”
