Update: Rent Control Talk Continues

Illinois rent controlBack in March, I discussed the proposal by Chicago-based state legislator Will Guzzardi (39th District – D) to repeal the law prohibiting rent control in Illinois.  That bill is currently in the rules committee and only recently, on August 29, 2017, added legislator Theresa Mah (2nd District – D) as another co-sponsor.  Both Chicago Magazine and the Reader have reported on recent events promoting the law as a way to reduce gentrification in the Pilsen neighborhood.  In the wake of all of the proposed ordinances and statutes, landlords are on the defensive and it seems that no actual reform of a slow and burdensome eviction system is underway.  Get organized landlords.
