... the state legislature doesn't allow him to do. The rent regulation laws expire again in 2003 (a year after the next gubinatorial election), while the Urstadt law, which prevents localities from imposing stricter rules than the state imposes, never expire.

: looks like he is, but who knows if he'll remember what is on his website in April:
: PROTECT TENANTS
: Rent stabilization and rent control protections should be continued. I would introduce local legislation to continue the rent stabilization and rent control laws after April 1, 2003 and fight for legislation in the State legislature to continue these protections. I would fight for legislation in the State legislature to enhance the Senior Citizen Rent Increase Exemption program and expand this program to other tenants in need of assistance.
