Push for more renter protections in Oregon

Kotek pushes for statewide cap on rent hikes, end to 'no-cause' evictions

The Oregon House Speaker Tina Kotek has suggested a number of controversial ideas to protect renters, including lifting the ban on rent-control and ending no-cause evictions.  The Oregonian has more.

Kotek’s proposals — likely to be fought by homebuilders and developers — follow a series of steps on housing during the 2016 short session and show the issue will remain a top priority during the six-month session that starts next year.
