Senator Bruno' response:
"As you may be aware, I have expressed my opposition
to simply extending New York's existing laws
governing rent regulation when they expire in June of
1997. I believe we must eventually move to a
moreopen and competitive housing market, which will
better provide for the housing needs of New Yorkers.
I am hopeful we can have a rigorous public discussion
and debate on this issue prior to the law's
expiration, which is why I have put forth a proposal
at this time.
As the State Legislature re-examines New York's rent
regulations during the 1997 Session, you may be
assured that I will continue to be strongly
supportive of maintaining rent regulations for senior
citizens, the disabled and lowest-income residents."
I (Meada) wondered what you thought Senator Bruno was
really saying. Do you think he means that about
senior citizens, the disabled and lowest-income
residents? Or might the plan be to let them go this
time and get after them next time? Somewhere I saw a
letter on Tenantnet in which the writer opined that
landlords like some form of rent regulation because
it gives them guaranteed income.
