SPUR Leads Coalition Questioning California Legislative Analyst's Estimate of Rental Debt

Policy Letter

The topic of rent debt in California is an urgent one and we applaud the LAO for tackling this important issue. The LAO is a statewide authority on public policy issues and your research greatly informs the policymaking process. However, the assumptions in the research report are likely to dramatically underestimate the true amount of rental debt, which could result in policy solutions that fail to meet the needs of the people of California.
