Wow. Occupy has been camping in the parks for quite some time (a year), but I’ve never seen anything like this . . . the campers I talked to had no idea what this is about . . . and I’m kinda creeped out by it.
At 5am this morning, I found out about 9 amendments to AB183 that the Assembly will be voting on today at 1:00 or at some time after that. Guess I better quick figure out what these amendments do . . . .
But not this time! AB183 Will Harm Both Tenants and Landlords – Tenant Resource Center Board of Directors Speaks Out in Opposition of Bill Being Voted on Tomorrow
A few meetings that aren’t on the official roster but of interest . . .
Here we go . . . the week ahead, as they have told us so far, likely missing meetings.
Ugh, I can’t. Board meeting. But you should really go . . ..
They are better Republicans than the Republicans in the Assembly . . . could the City be headed to court to challenge Local Control and Uniformity? I wish. I really don’t know, but the mayor raises a really, really good issue (read why I love this mayor even tho we don’t always agree!). Best quote: Ald. Lauren Cnare “this is about more than being mean to renters, its about ruining neighborhoods”!
Even if you don’t care about the 50+ tenant landlord law changes in AB183 (22 tenants rights at the state level and 25 or more at the local level), you should care about the sham that the Assembly Republicans, Realtors Association and Madison Area Apartment Association are making out of our democracy. Bill passed in 15 days or less?
This list still isn’t complete, but its teh list of the Madison ordinances to protect tenants that are at risk due to LRB 1931 or now known as AB183. Hearing tomorrow at 10:00. Public_Notice_5-2-13_Housing_and_Real_Estate
Yeah, it doesn’t even have a bill number yet!
