Los Angeles County Supervisors are voting on proposed rent control.

By Kevin Tripp, KABC

”The rent goes up, you can’t pay it, you’re kicked out, you can’t put together first and last, so you can’t move into something else. This is really important for our renters.”

”There are things in our building that we need to improve. We have problems with roofing. There was some improvements I wanted to make. But I just feel like we’re going to be squeezed to the point where we can’t make improvements.”
