I urge all members that have not submitted written testimony to do so now!

We are requesting all ORHA members and other Housing Providers submit written testimony in opposition to LC-18 before 1pm on Thursday 12/17/2020 to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org and sending a copy to your local legislators and a copy to ORHAoffice@gmail.com.

Let Oregon legislators know that housing providers should not be required to forgive any past due rents.
