Over 70 NBOA members and colleagues joined a 3/6/23 Zoom call where we received an update on pending legislation that could usher in rent control in Illinois.

Illinois Realtors Senior Advisor for Governmental Affairs Betsy Mitchell, State Rep (55th District) Marty Moylan and New Era Chicago founder Mike Hagenson participated in an informative one hour meeting, moderated by for Chicago Housing Commissioner and CIC President Jack Markowski.

Among the documents we shared is a summary of pending bills and the NBOA Fact Sheet stating our opposition to lifting the statewide ban, created by our Rent Control Task Force, lead by Hagenson.

Stay tuned for opportunities to advocate later this Spring - via a Lobby Day in Springfield (highly urged), phone calls, participating in our direct Zoom calls with legislators (contact us if you are interested, and, when the time is right, emails, letters and witness slips.

Meanwhile, familiarize yourself with these two important documents.
