Upon the declaration of an emergency, such as the recent fires, it is now a misdemeanor for a person, business, or other entity to increase the rental price offered for housing to an existing or prospective tenant by more than 10%. The bill additionally makes it a misdemeanor for a person, business, or entity to evict a housing tenant after the proclamation of a state of emergency and then rent or offer to rent to another person at a rental price higher than the evicted tenant could be charged.
