Representatives of several rental companies testified Tuesday that the bill, AB753, unfairly targets them. They argued that the matter should be handled at the federal level so they do not have to deal with a patchwork of rules.

The association representing the industry said the bill, if signed into law, would set the first such rules in the nation. The measure was approved 6-2 by a legislative committee.
