FAA, AAGO Issue Joint Response to Rent Control Proposals

The apartment industry recognizes the housing shortage has impacted housing affordability in Central Florida, and looks forward to working collaboratively with state and local policymakers to increase the supply and affordability of housing in the state of Florida. While some lawmakers may view rent control as a viable option, in practice these policies have demonstrable and well documented negative effects.

The enhanced listing will include premium placement, a company description, contact information, a link to your website and social media feeds.
