Landlords speak out against proposed expansion of city's rental licensing program

I live in a rental house in a single-family neighborhood. My house has been inspected twice in the past five years. Of all the many violations the inspector requested to be fixed, only one has been repaired. All of the violations in the first inspection five years ago were cited again in the inspection last year. What is the point of an expanded inspection system if there is no aegis of power to force code and safety violations to be repaired? How will the new system actually make my landlord add grounded outlets and smoke detectors to the house?
