- Eviction and steep rent increases for good cause only. Rent stabilized , rent controlled, and a few other tenants have this, but the rest don't. If we're to be a community, we all need it. The bill would limit rent increases above 5% to those cases where landlords can show they really need it. And evictions would be because the tenant misbehaved (or the landlord is going to live in the apartment), and not just because the owner wants the tenant out. So even market tenants could complain about poor conditions without fear of losing their homes.
- Permanent rental assistance to those who need it.
- No more tax breaks for luxury development. Why should our tax dollars subsidize construction of luxury units? (And on my own personal corollary, why should buildings that the government subsidized for years be allowed to go private?)

Landlords must provide heat to tenants from October 1st through May 31st each year under these conditions:
DAY: 6 AM to 10 PM - If the outside temperature is below 55° F, the inside temperature must be at least 68° F.
NIGHT: 10 PM to 6 AM - The inside temperature must be at least 62°F regardless of the outside temperature.
Measure the indoor temperature with a digital thermometer in the middle of your room. If the temperature on that thermometer is below the legal limit, file a 311 complaint. Then send the complaint number, including your name, apartment, and the time, date, and temperature to CPGTenAssoc at gmail dot com.
