Speaker Heastie Statement on Rent Regulations

Two weeks ago the Assembly passed a comprehensive bill to renew and strengthen rent regulations which was supported by Governor Cuomo, Mayor de Blasio and tenant advocates. Only the Senate is standing in the way of these new laws which are crucial to millions of New Yorkers. I call on Governor Cuomo to stand with us in calling on the Senate to end their blocking of these crucial laws.

Rent laws should stand on their own merit and must be done independent of any other issues the Governor or the Senate may be advancing.
