RENT CONTROL AMENDMENTS

TO: THE SAN FRANCISCO BOARD OF SUPERVISORS RE: SUPERVISOR CHRIS DALY'S PROPOSED RENT CONTROL AMENDMENTS We, San Francisco tenants and tenants, allies, strongly support Supervisor Chris Daly's rent control amendments that will: 1) Suspend any rent increases which will cause a tenant's rent to exceed 33% of their income. 2) Expand the rights of tenants to add roommates to help pay the rent. 3) Limit the amount of "banked" rent increases which can be imposed in any one year. This important proposal will help tenants afford rents as the economic crisis reduces wages and jobs. Thank you. --------------------------------------------- A: LA MESA DE SUPERVISORES DE SAN FRANCISCO ACERCA DE: ENMIENDAS AL CONTROL DE RENTA PROPUESTAS POR EL SUPERVISOR CHRIS DALY Nosotros los inquilinos de San Francisco y aliados de inquilinos apoyamos fuertemente las enmiendas al control de renta que propuso Chris Daly que: 1) Suspenderá todos los aumentos de renta donde el inquilino tendrá que pagar más de 33% de su ingreso. 2) Ampliarán los derechos de inquilinos para que puedan agregar compañeros de casa para ayudar a pagar la renta. 3) Limitarán la cantidad de aumentos de renta acumulados que se pueden imponer en un solo año. Esta propuesta de suma importancia ayudará a los inquilinos poder pagar su renta durante esta crisis económica que ha desminuido salarios y empleos. Gracias.
