Lawmakers Continue Talks on NYC Rent Regulations

The state legislature is set to continue talks on rent control laws that apply to roughly 1 million New York City apartments on Tuesday following a temporary extension of the 1946 law Monday night. The new deadline is midnight Tuesday.

Senate Republicans want to pass an extension of the current provisions wants. The Democrat-led Assembly wants to strengthen protections for tenants.

The issue has been linked to a property tax cap and gay marriage legislation as the end of the session nears.
