Approximately 3,800 Illinois REALTORS® have asked their state representatives to reject House Bill 2430 since Monday afternoon because it will repeal the Rent Control Preemption Act of 1997.
The intent of the law is to create rent control in Chicago but repealing the act would by default make rent control an option for all home rule units in Illinois, not just Chicago. To join your colleagues and tell House members HB 2430 is a threat to private property rights, click here.
After less than 24 hours, 1,800 members of Illinois REALTORS® participated in the Call for Action regarding the bill. Since then, 2,000 more have joined the cause.
