KANSAS CITY, Mo. —
Renters are proposing a tenant bill of rights in Kansas City. Now, landlords are pushing back.
An ordinance being considered by the special committee on housing would protect tenants from discrimination against criminal history, rental history and source of income.
“We need the ability to make sure the person we put in the property is able to pay so that way we can protect our assets. It’s an investment for us, it’s not a charity. It’s an investment,” landlord Stacey Johnson-Cosby said.
The committee will revisit the measure Wednesday.
