Pat interview Sacramento Bee Reporter Bryan Anderson about the recent rent caps signed into law by Governor Gavin Newsom.

So around 7% or 8% rate increases the year. Some question whether it goes strong enough. Others say you shouldn’t be limiting what homeowners and landlords can charge. It has a September 13 deadline. So next Friday, in order to get through to Governor Newsom’s staff.
