Actually the RSA is not only one PAC, it's two-and they're both registered. THey have the RSA-PAC and the Neighborhood Preservation PAC (both names are disingenuous given their efforts to destabilize neighborhoods and other nefarious deeds). Yes, they're a trade group as well. But you are correct about the window guard notice. It's not really a big deal and the original poster was jumping to some incorrect conclusions.
: The RSA is a trade group, not a PAC. The window guard law requires landlords -- not any city or state agency -- to distribute the notices. I wish the administrative burden of print, distributing, collating, etc., window guard notices fell on the city.
: The RSA does this as a service (at a per unit price) for landlords. The RSA form is the same in substance the form promulgated by the DOH. Permitting a non-substantive change in order to make distribution of legally required notices easier is usually called good government.
: :Does anyone know how and when this took place? It sets a pretty dangerous precedent, when a rich landlord PAC can function in place of the government.
: The RSA has done this as long or almost as long as the window guard law has been in effect.
