Code 53 tackles rent control and asks why a failed policy proven to reduce housing supply and negatively impact the low-income households it aims to support, continues to proliferate in state houses and city halls across the country. NMHC's Vice President of Advocacy and Strategic Communications, Jim Lapides, joins hosts Alison Johnson and Kevin Cameron for a vital discussion about rent control and how we got here.
