In March 2016 the City Council adopted the Rent Review, Rent Stabilization and Limitations on Evictions Ordinance, to stabilize rents and limit the grounds for terminating tenancies. In August, the City Council submitted to voters a confirmation of this ordinance, which passed in November as Measure L1. EBRHA opposed both measures on the ballot, but the less caustic measure passed. This measure is effective 10 days after the vote is declared by City Council. Note: The tenant-supported rent control initiative (Measure M1) failed.
