KANSAS CITY TENANTS 'BILL OF RIGHTS' PASSES COMMITTEE AMID MASSIVE EAST SIDE PUBLIC TESTIMONY TURNOUT!!!
Opponents of more Kansas City housing regulations were simply outnumbered for the public discussion of a tenant "Bill Of Rights" that was approved tonight by the City Hall housing committee.
To wit . . .
KC TENANTS WON TONIGHT WITH A TURNOUT OF HUNDREDS DEMANDING MORE STRINGENT HOUSING REGULATION FROM CITY HALL!!!
Here's the word:
"Housing committee just passed our Tenants Bill of Rights resolution out of committee and recommended for a vote in full council!!! Ordinance still being debated now."
Landlord home provider criticism:
"(KC Tenants' Bill Of Rights) creates a lengthy, expensive process for screening tenants for Felony convictions, and Eviction or Rental History. The language as it stands is potentially creating a situation for housing providers to be violating Fair Housing by making written standards become subjective and not applied equally . . ."
Response from another person watching this argument:
"@KCMO Reject KC Tenants Bill of rights legislation as it is too radical too communistic, and will create higher rents and more homelessness!"
Celebration and perspective from the debate:
"If being a landlord is so taxing, maybe don’t base how you make your living on other people’s very basic needs BILL PASSES TO CITY COUNCIL! Win!"
And so we invite our blog community to consider this argument as it heads to the full Council this week . . .
WHO DO YOU SUPPORT??? KC TENANTS OR HOME PROVIDERS?!?! TELL US WHY!!!
You decide . . .
