In Reply to: Assembly Bill A.2A, which "makes all rent-regulated tenants subject to the same system of rent adjustments." posted by Meada on March 22, 1997 at 00:15:23:
: I had written to Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver urging
: him to support rent stabilization with no weakening
: amendments. I received a letter back saying that he and
: Vito Lopez had introduced Bill A.2A, which permanently
: extends rent regulations.
: The part of the bill that I have big questions about is
: what he describes as "This legislation also streamlines the
: administrative process, making all rent-regulated tenants
: subject to the same system of rent adjustments."
: Does that statement mean they would do away with the Tenant
: Emergency Protection Act, as well as rent control as an
: entity separate from rent stabilization?
: Are there any other weakening give-backs implied in that
: statement? What does the statement mean anyway?
I'm not sure but what I read about the assembly proposal is that it calls for "the elimination of apartment leases, entitling tenants to permanent occupancy with periodic rent hikes decided by the city Rent Guidelines Board". I've also read that the assembly proposal stands "no chance" of approval without amendments but it's a starting point for negotiations with the senate. The assembly, senate and Pataki all have to come to some agreement or the rent regulations will automatically expire in June.
