Take Immediate Action Against the Repeal of the Rent Control Preemption Act

We need you to take quick, immediate action against HB116 – House Committee Amendment 1, which would repeal the Rent Control Preemption Act. A repeal of this act would allow any local governmental body in the state of Illinois to implement rent control measures on residential or commercial property leases. We oppose rent control because it is a blanket policy that does not solve the problem of housing affordability or housing availability. Read more about our stance here. Illinois residents are saddled with high property taxes with no solution in sight. Rent control limits private owners from adjusting rents while our lawmakers refuse to solve property tax problems. Property tax control needs to be the priority.
