Rent control is a divisive topic with very strong opinions on both sides.
State Senator Martin Quezada hopes this year things change. "We proposed a bill that would limit the amount of rent increases," he stated.
Quezada represents the Arizona's Legislative District 29.
While he says his previous rent control bills have gone nowhere, he hopes this year the timing is right.
"I'm having person after person telling me they can't afford their rent and they have no other place to go," Quezada said.
