Rent Control Ordinance in city of Alameda Doesn't Make Anyone Happy

At 2:30 am the city of Alameda approved the cities first ever rent control measure. The ordinance will bring an end to the rent hike and no-fault eviction moratorium passed as an emergency measure 18 months ago when tenants complained of rents increasing a hundred dollars a month. But a year and a half later neither the landlords nor renters are happy with the hotly debated ordinance. Pacifica's Mike Kohn reports from the Alameda High school Auditorium.
