SACRAMENTO, Calif. - State lawmakers are introducing new proposals that protect renters.

One measure would stop price hikes and gouging while another would stop landlords from evicting tenants without cause.

A third measure would allow local jurisdictions to amend rent control laws.

While this would all protect renters. Critics of the measures say more regulation could push landlords out of the real estate business and that it could ultimately hurt the economy.

"When you impose overly restrictive regulation and more and more government control is people just decide to take their units off the housing market altogether," said Assembly Member Kevin Kiley.

This recent move follows the defeat of Prop10 in November which aimed to increase rent control.
