* Local rent control ordinances are banned by state statute here…
This Act may be cited as the Rent Control Preemption Act.
(50 ILCS 825/5)
Sec. 5. Rent control prohibited.
(a) A unit of local government, as defined in Section 1 of Article VII of the Illinois Constitution, shall not enact, maintain, or enforce an ordinance or resolution that would have the effect of controlling the amount of rent charged for leasing private residential or commercial property.
* So, no matter what this group claims, an Illinois governor cannot unilaterally overturn a state statute…
Tell Governor Pritzker now: do not leave renters behind in this crisis.

People need to stop cynically using this very real crisis to advance their legislative priorities. Rent control is a legislative matter. Take it up with the General Assembly.
And stop misinforming the public! Don’t be covidiots.
