Propositions 98 and 99 are both on Tuesday's ballot. If both are passed, the proposition that receives the most votes will become law. Proposition 98 prohibits any new mobile home rent control laws and ordinances and immediately repeals any mobile home rent control ordinance that was adopted after Jan. 1, 2007.
That's us! Modesto's rent control ordinance would be lost and Riverbank, Ceres and the county would have no possibility of enacting any ordinance of that sort. The mobile park industry and apartment owners have spent millions to add into Proposition 98 the elimination of all rent control and renter protection laws. No on 98.
Proposition 99 is real eminent domain reform. It stops government from taking homes to transfer to private developers. Yes on 99.
