Vote on Rent Control Scheduled for Thursday

This came across the MPD-3D Yahoo! group from Alan Heymann, the Director of Constituent Services for Jim Graham.

The Committee on Consumer and Regulatory Affairs, chaired by Councilmember
Graham, will vote on the most significant strengthening of rent control in
20 years -- along with four other bills on tenant rights. The bills are
16-457, 458, 48, 51, and 109.

Thursday, March 16, 2006, 3:30 p.m.
John A. Wilson Building, 1350 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Room 123

The focus is so often on the new mid-rise condominium buildings that it is easy to forget how many of our neighbors rent their homes. Regardless of your opinion on rent control, this is an important event.
