Housing Provider testimony against LC-18 went very well last night. However, we were overshadowed by the amount of testimony in favor of LC-18. You can see last night's hearing here:
I urge all members that have not submitted written testimony to do so now!

In this bill legislators are asking Housing Providers to forgive 20% of rent owed by tenants.

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: email@example.com 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.
