AB 354 was heard on June 20th and it will be a game changer.

AB 354 will be heard on June 20th in the SENATE BANKING AND FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS COMMITTEE

Majority Leader Ian Calderon is proposing AB 354, which would require Institutional Landlords to report the individual addresses of the homes they own to the State each year, including income and rent increases.

PLEASE CALL and MESSAGE THE COMMITTEE Members and urge them to Vote YES and move this bill forward! The Tenants of Corporate Landlords DESERVE transparency and a fighting chance against Billionaire Wall Street Landlords. It is only requiring REPORTING – no harm to the Billionaires. But, the information is critical to tenants and potential tenants as a Consumer Protection measure, for research, and tracking the impact on Californians.
