Local Issues


RHA advocates on behalf of the rental housing industry before city councils, county board of supervisors and other government bodies throughout the Sacramento Valley region. Our service territory includes the counties of Sacramento, Yolo, Yuba, Sutter, Placer, Nevada, El Dorado and Amador.

Industry issues. such as new ordinances and fees on rental properties, often are determined at the local level, where RHA is recognized as the voice of the rental housing industry.

A key reason for our success is RHA support of industry-friendly candidates running for office through endorsements and campaign contributions by our political action committee, the California Apartment Association Political Action Committee (CAAPAC).

Our members should alert RHA of new issues that affect rental properties by contacting Cory Koehler, Senior Deputy Director - Government Affairs, at Cory@RHA.org or (916) 920-1120 x206.
