Reform Group Says It Has Signatures for Rent Control Ordinance

Fair Rent Portland, a Portland rent reform group, says it has enough signatures to put a rent control ordinance on the Portland City ballot this fall.

The proposed ordinance would cap the amount that certain landlords could increase their rent each year, and includes other renter protections.

The group plans to deliver the signatures to the City Clerk on Monday.
