(Salem, OR) -- A House-passed bill intended to protect renters in Oregon is being considered in a Senate committee. The measure would effectively end no-cause evictions state-wide, and remove the state's ban on rent control. Should the bill pass, it would allow municipalities and local governments to enact caps on rent increases. Opponents say the bill is a bad deal for property owners and would make housing more expensive. The bill must get approval from the full Senate before it reaches the governor's desk.
