State Democratic lawmakers have introduced a slew of bills to beef up protections for California renters:  Assemblymember David Chiu’s AB1482 seeks to put a cap on rent increases and several of his Bay Area colleagues proposed laws that seek to protect renters from unjust evictions; require landlords to report annually how much they charge in rent, the number of evictions, and length of vacancies; and expand rent control to buildings constructed after 1995.
