The Greater Los Angeles Apartment Association has been resolutely OPPOSITE to Senate Bill 679 due to higher tax charges that would be imposed at a time when we are still under moratoriums on rent increases and evictions. WE ASKED THE GOVERNOR HIS VETO. But let Governor Newsom’s team hear from you!

ACT NOW! – STOP THE MADNESS – Ask for a veto on SB 679 and 1477

Arguments against SB 679. When you call or email, be sure to tell the Governor’s Legislative Unit that you oppose Senate Bill 679. REQUEST THAT THE GOVERNOR VETO SB 679. Say you’re a housing provider and can’t pay taxes anymore.

  • Senate Bill 679 would raise taxes and impose additional housing regulations on you. After what we as our state’s housing providers have been through for the past two years of disputed rent collection and no rent increases, the last thing we need is more property taxes and regulations that are more costly to comply with.
  • The redundant and unnecessary agency created by SB 679 would be authorized to place funding measures (e.g., bonds) on the ballot in Los Angeles County, including all of its incorporated cities, to support the programs of agency, such as Parcel Taxes, Gross Receipts Business License Taxes, Documentary Transfer Taxes, Unspecified Bonds, Income Bonds, Mortgage Income Bonds, and Private Activity Bonds. Everyone’s taxes will go up.
  • Experience has shown that it costs the government at least $800,000 (this was verified by Los Angeles City Comptroller Ron Galperin) to build an “affordable” one-bedroom unit in the downtown area. Greater Los Angeles, raising hundreds of billions of dollars wouldn’t even be enough. make a “breach” in the housing of the homeless. Feasible solutions such as addiction treatment, mental health services, job training and other “wraparound” services. SB 679 would simply lead to more government waste.
  • A much better solution than SB 679 would be to provide incentives to private developers who know how to build efficiently and could afford to build affordable housing with the right tax incentives in place. Government must learn to use ‘carrots’ rather than hitting us with ‘sticks’ to encourage private industry to create new affordable housing developments.
  • SB 679 is nothing more than a “money grab” resulting in more unnecessary expense, more complicated regulations to follow, and more headaches and financial hardship for those of us working in the housing sector.

Arguments against SB 1477. When you call or email, be sure to tell the Governor’s Legislative Unit that you oppose Senate Bill 1477. REQUEST THAT THE GOVERNOR VETO SB 1477. Say you are a housing provider and you were promised that you would be able to collect the rent owed to you, but SB 1477 will prevent you from doing so.

  • If SB 1477 is passed, any outstanding rent owed to you will be virtually uncollectible, as wages are often the only “asset” a residential tenant has. Passing SB 1477 will essentially render the state’s promise to landlords that we can collect COVID rent owed meaningless.
  • Cities like Los Angeles are proposing new laws that have an amount of “base rent overdue” (e.g. $10,000 has been proposed in Los Angeles) under which the landlord will be prohibited from using an eviction process and will then be forced to seek damages through small claims court. In other words, unless the tenant owes the landlord $10,000 or more, the landlord cannot evict him and will be forced to seek a money judgment through small claims court that will be worthless because of the limits that would be placed on wage garnishments.
  • Independent, “mom and pop” landlords will have only one recourse when a tenant fails to pay their rent – ​​report overdue rent payments to the credit bureaus. To make matters worse, the credit system is undergoing a major overhaul and the same metrics used in the past will no longer be used in the future to determine creditworthiness. In other words, landlords will have no recourse when tenants do not pay their rent.
  • The promise of state and local municipalities of COVID protection laws and moratoriums such as “nothing in this order releases the tenant’s obligation to pay rent”, and which landlords can collect in small claims court will mean nothing if the landlord cannot use wage garnishments.
