OPPOSE government rent control in Colorado!!
A free society embraces free-market capitalism. But Rep. Paul Weissman (D) doesn't like free market capitalism. So he has sponsored HB 1140, which would repeal statutory provisions prohibiting counties and municipalities from enacting any ordinance or resolution that would CONTROL RENTS on private residential property! If government can dictate the rent charged for private residential properties, then how is it private? Apparently Weissman doesn't quite grasp the concept of PRIVATE property -- or how the free market works.
You can view HB 1140 on-line at:
ACTION: The Local Government Committee will be reviewing this bill (and hearing testimony) on Thursday morning (Jan. 24) at the State Capitol in Room 0111. Please contact the Representatives on this committee and urge them to defend the rights of private residential property owners through OPPOSING HB 1140!
