It’s time to
permanently fix
our rent laws

Carmen E. Arroyo

Dear Neighbor,

The Assembly passed a package of bills that promotes fairness in rent-regulated communities. Now is the time to fix our rent laws once and for all, because more and more New Yorkers are caught between the twin burdens of high rent and lost wages due to the economic crisis.

For over a decade, the Assembly Majority has been looking out for the best interests of renters by battling the wealthy and powerful landlords whose primary goal is to end New York City’s rent protection laws permanently.

New York City loses over 10,000 apartments to deregulation every year. Since 1997, over 300,000 units of rent-regulated housing have been lost, making it next to impossible for the people who make our city work to live here, including teachers, police officers, firefighters and nurses.

The Assembly Majority is fighting to protect working families and low- and middle-income people from being priced out of their homes, and ensuring that the people who keep our city running can afford to live here, too.

Assembly passes rent-regulation package.
Now let’s make them law.

New York City residents are battling a crushing recession and devastating job losses – no one should be unfairly priced out of their homes, on top of it all. The Assembly Majority is standing up to wealthy and powerful landlords who have launched an unrelenting attack on rent regulations. Their goal is to deregulate apartments permanently. That’s why Assemblywoman Arroyo helped pass bills to help ensure affordable housing continues in New York City:

“Without rent regulation, only the rich would be able to afford to live here. We need to keep New York City diverse. These measures could take some of the pressure off struggling families and put affordable housing within reach of our hardworking men and women.”
