A proposed rent control measure has been met with waves of resistance from Burbank elected officials. First, the city clerk filed a legal challenge. Then, Burbank’s City Council added their own legal challenge.

A judge is expected to rule on its merits today, and what she decides will determine whether Burbank voters have a chance to weigh in on rent control in their city. The measure would also give new powers to a Landlord-Tenant Commission and create new barriers to evictions.
