Rent Control

First published in the Aug. 20 print issue of the Burbank Leader.

If Burbank Water and Power were to limit how much electricity were available on a hot day, and sell what they had to the highest bidder, we would be outraged. Yet we have limited the availability of rental housing for years causing rents to go up to the point of being unaffordable for most people. If the policy is to limit supply, then we must limit price through regulation.
