This action is part of a campaign organized by the New York State Tenants & Neighbors Coalition to urge the state legislature to pass a bill that has been introduced by Assembly Member Rosenthal (A7881) that would end the annual 7.5% rent increases and bring the increases for rent controlled tenants in line with typical rent stabilized adjustments, replacing the 7.5% rent increase with a rolling average of the past five years of New York City RGB rent adjustments for one-year renewal leases.
