Proposition 10 would have overturned a 23-year-old law limiting the use of rent control in California, allowing cities to enact rent control.

The prop would throw out a state law Costa-Hawkins Act that barred rent control on all housing built after February 1, 1995. It would give landlords the right to raise the rent to a market rate after a tenant moves out.
