Cook County Section 8 update

The Illinois Association of Realtors is reporting that efforts to add Section 8 protection to the Cook County fair housing law seem to have stalled.

The report indicates that the association’s Assistant Director for Advocacy and Local Issues,Mike Scobey has indicated that the law change is not likely to make it to a vote of the full Cook County Board.

A quick review of the twittersphere, however, indicates that tenant’s rights organizations like the Metropolitan Tenant’s Union and the Jewish Council on Urban Affairs have not given up the fight.
