Landlords Pay Top Dollar -- Richmond Rent Control on Hold

A Richmond rent control ordinance set to take effect today is on hold until at least November of next year. Landlords turned in 7,000 signatures to force the City Council to put the measure on the ballot next year, or vote to repeal it. Supports of rent control said highly paid petition circulators misled signers as to the true nature of the petition. Tom Herriman reports from Richmond.
