It’s back. On February 7, 2019, 31st district state Representative Mary Flowers introduced House Bill 2192 establishing the the Illinois Rent Control Act to the state legislature. I have not yet made an exhaustive review of the legislative text, but it looks shockingly similar to the second version of the bill introduced to the State Senate last summer. It’s not good and every landlord in Chicago needs to be aware of (and oppose) this law which goes well beyond rent control and fundamentally changes landlord-tenant law in the State of Illinois. Stay tuned to this blog as I will make an examination of the new law and will update which parts, if any, of my prior series exploring the previously introduced law will need modification (if any).
