HB 131 (Rent Control Jurisdiction Amendments)
Libertas Institute opposes this bill.
This bill would allow local governments to create "rent control" laws that arbitrarily impose price restrictions on the cost of renting property.
Libertas opposes this bill. Rental prices should be subject only to market forces as a private contractual matter between landlord and renter. The government's intervention into this relationship would be arbitrary and distort the market unnecessarily.
