Los Angeles County moves toward temporary rent control

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has given preliminary approval of a temporary limit on rent increases in unincorporated areas of the county.

The motion approved Tuesday on a 4-1 vote tells county attorneys to draft a rent stabilization ordinance that will come back to the board for a vote in 60 days. If approved, it would take effect 30 days later and be in effect for six months.

Supervisor Sheila Kuehl said rent stabilization helps deal with homelessness resulting from evictions.
