Legal Aid Testifies on Rent Regulations Before NY Assembly Housing Committee

Ellen Davidson, Staff Attorney in the Law Reform Unit of The Legal Aid Society, testified before the New York Assembly Housing Committee Hearing on Rent Regulations.      

    "This combination of market forces and governmental decisions has worked together to have a devastating effect on low and moderate income New Yorkers," she said. "The declining number of vacant units available for rent, the fact that housing expansion has not kept pace with population growth, and the ongoing public housing crisis have all contributed to the scarcity of available affordable housing."
