PROP 33, THE RENT CONTROL BALLOT MEASURE, WILL ONLY MAKE CALIFORNIAā€™S HOUSING CRISIS WORSE.

GET THE FACTS

California already has among the strongest statewide tenant protection laws in the country, providing certainty on rent increases while ensuring critical affordable housing can still be built in our state.

But Michael Weinstein and his multi-million dollar special interest group are pushing Prop 33, their third attempt to impose a flawed rent control measure on Californians.

These same special interests have spent tens of millions of dollars on their flawed proposalsā€”only to have Proposition 21 defeated with a 60% NO vote in 2020 while Proposition 10 was rejected with a 59% NO vote in 2018.

Their latest rent control initiative, Prop 33, is bad for homeowners and renters.Ā 

It will reduce our housing supply and make Californiaā€™s housing crisis even worse.

Join us in defeating this flawed rent control measure!

Prop 33 Undermines Californiaā€™s New Statewide Rent Control Law

California already has among the strongest statewide rent control laws in the country. Under Prop 33, local governments can even give landlords the power to raise rents higher than whatā€™s allowed under Californiaā€™s statewide renter protections.

Prop 33 Allows Regulation of Single-Family Homes

This deeply flawed initiative allows local governments to impose rent control on apartments and privately-owned single-family homes without a vote of the people. It may even open the door to permanent price controls on private residences, even some single-family homes.

Prop 33 Reduces Housing Supply and Drives Up the Cost of Existing Housing

This initiative will encourage landlords to take rental properties off the market and convert them into condos, further reducing the housing supply and making the housing crisis even worse. It will prevent critical affordable housing development by creating an inconsistent and unpredictable patchwork of local ordinancesā€”driving up rents and housing costs up even higher. This will hit low-income families especially hard.

Prop 33 Puts Unelected Bureaucrats in Charge of Housing with the Power to Add Additional Fees

The flawed rent control measure will give unelected bureaucrats the power to add fees on rental housing without votersā€™ approvalā€”making rental housing even more expensive and driving up the cost of living. It will put as many as 539 rental boards in charge of rental housing, with bureaucrats deciding what people can or cannot do with their properties. Even worse, it could even lead to unelected bureaucrats charging homeowners a fee for taking their homes off the rental market.

Prop 33 Adds Tens of Millions in New Costs to Local Governments

The stateā€™s non-partisan Legislative Analyst Office says this flawed measure would increase costs for local governments by tens of millions of dollars per year and cost the state millions more in lost revenueā€”diverting funds from other vital state services.
