Matt and Liam discuss a handful of tenants’ rights bills with uncertain futures currently making their way through the Legislature. First, an Avocado of the Fortnight asks what historians will make of a Los Angeles-area gas station decades from now (2:30). The Number of the Fortnight introduces us to an arcane part of the legislative process called the “suspense file”, which could spell the doom of several key housing bills (5:30). Then the current state of tenants’ rights in California, and some bills meant to strengthen those protections (12:30). Finally, an interview with Fernando Nadal, an organizer for the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment who was removed from a Sacramento rental property he lived in two years ago (28:20).
