Every day, tenants in our district are being forced out of their homes by huge rent increases, and there is no way to fight it. Landlords eager for gentrification can evict people just to charge someone else a higher rent. This is devastating our communities and making it impossible for working people to survive. We must pass the “Housing Security and Protection Act” (formerly known as “Good Cause Eviction”) in the New York State Legislature. This bill prevents tenants in market-rate apartments from being evicted for not paying an “unconscionable” increase in rent. As Assembly Member, I will co-sponsor and whip support in my conference for the “Housing Security and Protection Act” (Assembly Bill A5030A), and make sure the final version of this legislation sets rent limits that truly help keep our tenants in their homes.
