State Legislative session ends without rent control repeal

The Illinois legislature adjourned its Spring Session on May 31, 2018.  Of note was the fact that the body did not vote to pass a number of bills seeking to remove the current statutory state-wide prohibition on rent control.  This is good news for landlords… for now.

There is word though that organizations representing landlords believe that tenant activists will be pushing the issue again this coming fall.   Worse yet, two of the Democratic Party candidates for governor are in support of a repeal of the current law.

Landlords: remain diligent.  Talk to your state representatives.  This issue will not go away without your active support.
