    California gets its first statewide rent control, eviction protections

    As living costs soar across California amid a severe housing crunch, millions of residents will be protected for the first time from large rent increases and losing their homes if they have been reliable tenants.

    Gov. Gavin Newsom signed AB1482 on Tuesday at a West Oakland senior center, imposing the first-ever statewide cap on rent increases and requiring landlords to provide a “just cause” when evicting tenants.

    Supporters estimate the law will extend protections to an additional 8 million renters in California. Cities including San Francisco and Oakland already have rent-control ordinances that cover about 2 million people.

    Newsom said it is a necessary first step to address the cost of living in California, an issue driving so many others in the state, including the high rates of poverty and homelessness. But he added that there is much more work to be done.

    “We need to build more damn housing,” the governor said.

    California is the third state this year to adopt significant rent regulations, giving renewed national momentum to the push for rent control. Newsom predicted that more states would follow.

    Supply and demand. Too many people inevitably results in actions like rent control.

    The issue of affordable housing will never be resolved until government and neighborhood associations and their stupid, fiddle rules and regulations get out of the way so poor people can find a way to own property.

    Nobody can be this stupid.

    The CaliComs have become “free market capitalists” all of a sudden. Well, kind of. You can’t “gentrify” existing places. Housing must be built in the backyards of rich people, but they better have cheap rent. This talking point is everywhere now, along with the leftist “YIMBY” movement (people who don’t own property or homes). It is all about blame.
