An East Palo Alto Rent Control, Measure H ballot proposition was on the June 8, 2010 ballot for voters in East Palo Alto in San Mateo County, where it was approved.[1]

Measure H repealed the rent-stabilization law that had been in effect in East Palo Alto, and amended East Palo Alto's procedures to establish permissible rent levels to maintain consistency with state law. Under Measure H, tenants are protected from "unreasonable rent increases." Evictions are harder. Discriminatory or retaliatory evictions are prohibited.
