: : : : Who's in charge of the rent controlled apt I have been living in
: for the past 40 years? The City Council or the State Legislature? Why
: is this matter even up for discussion? I though the law expires only
: if the vacancy rate reaches above 5%.. Did I miss something important
: I should know about?
: The rent regulatory laws (both RC & RS) are very complicated and they're
: on the web site. The state legislature passes "enabling legislation"
: which allows the municipalities to pass their own laws. The RC law
: stems from 1962 and after the state allowed them to do it, the city
: passed its own RC local laws. The state laws are up this year, and by
: extension, the city laws as well.
: Although Pataki is one of the villians, you should set your sites
: locally -- on your own state assemblyman and state senator as well
: as Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver; they are the ones who must be
: held accountable for any weakening. I agree but I had the impression that the Assembly is for the continuation, the Senate seems to be against and Pataki could have alot of influence on what happens. Is that correct?
