The Argument Against Rent Control In California Prop 10

California is one of just a handful of states that allows rent control, but the price caps on rent are limited by the Costa-Hawkins act of the mid-1990s. 

So it should surprise no one that the limits on rent control are being challenged in the November election. 

Proposition 10 would repeal Costa-Hawkins, allowing more flexibility for cities to put controls on rents.  And that troubles a number of groups, who worry that rent control will drive some landlords out of the market and make housing even more scarce. 

The No on Prop 10 campaign is putting a lot of effort and money into defeating the measure.  Steven Maviglio joins us with the argument against Prop 10.
