More on Proposition 98. [Saturday, Apr. 12th, 2008|11:37 pm]
The richest girl in town.
The important language in Prop. 98 is that it forbids the transfer of economic benefit from a property owner to a private party (ie, a tenant living in an apartment covered by a rent control ordinance; affordable-housing set aside requirements in new developments) AND prohibits any law that places an economic burden on a property owner. This may be interpreted to include just cause eviction requirements, environmental regulations, the return of security deposits, and living-wage ordinances. This opens the door to tens of thousands of lawsuits by landlords against governments that have just-cause eviction ordinances like SF, Oakland, and Berkeley and the state.

It's evil any way you look at it. And they're trying to get it passed under the guise of "eminent domain reform" and have it on the June ballot because they know there will be a low voter turnout. They're banking on us not voting.
