Rental registration...Keeping track of those pesky landlords.....It's been pushed for years by the Times, DANC, and the egalitarian elites. It's likely to have problems getting passed in an era of suspicion about big government.
The national mood matters even in a local debate over something like this. \
Councilman Stephen Jennings ran on the issue in 2013 and he will be running on it again next year as the program will not be enacted quickly.
The legislation gets introduced this month, but for those of us who play nice, its one more bit of bureaucracy. For those who don't play nice, it's something to ignore.
It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
For the record, I have two rental units.
