PART 3
LOCAL CONTROL OF RENTS PROHIBITED

Control of rents by counties and municipalities prohibited.

The general assembly finds and declares that the imposition of rent control on private residential housing units is a matter of statewide concern; therefore, no county or municipality may enact any ordinance or resolution which would control rents on private residential property. This section is not intended to impair the right of any state agency, county, or municipality to manage and control any property in which it has an interest through a housing authority or similar agency. 38-12-301
