The Los Angeles City Council on Friday passed a new law that will require mandatory retrofitting for more than 15,000 buildings.

It's among the strongest earthquake safety laws in the nation, but renters and landlords are worried about who will shoulder the cost.

Larry Gross, executive director of the Coalition for Economic Survival, joined the show to discuss the basics of the new ordinance, and how renters and landlords alike could be impacted.
