(Portland, OR)  --  An ordinance that would require landlords to help pay moving expenses for tenants who are evicted without cause or have to move after a steep rent increase will move forward, after a unanimous vote by the Portland City Council.  Councilwoman Chloe Eudaly, who sponsored the temporary ordinance, says it's the only tool the city of Portland has to protect renters.  The ordinance is to be in effect for eight months.  Mayor Ted Wheeler says more lower-income housing is still needed to help resolve the problem of high rents.
