We are just 13 days away from the mid-term elections, when Californians will decide the fate of Costa- Hawkins. Voting Yes for Prop 10 will overturn Costa-Hawkins, allowing cities to implement rent control however they want. Voting No on Prop 10 will keep the current status quo.

Today on Ask Marc Anything, I take a look at this report and give my thoughts on it, as well as point out the flaws in the findings of the report.
