Eviction Representation Measure

(Portland, OR) -- Multnomah County voters will decide an initiative in May that would establish a program to pay legal fees for anyone being evicted. It would create the Tenant Resource Office which would be funded by a three-quarters of a percent tax on capital gains. New York, San Francisco, and Cleveland have similar programs. The Multnomah County Commission is expected to approve a resolution this week that will put it on the May 16th ballot. Organizers collected enough signatures to get the measure on the ballot.
