The current law states, “A unit of local government, as defined in Section 1 of Article VII of the Illinois Constitution, shall not enact, maintain, or enforce an ordinance or resolution that would have the effect of controlling the amount of rent charged for leasing private residential or commercial property.” (50 ILCS 825/)
House Bill 116 would repeal the Rent Control Preemption Act, which will then allow local governments to pass ordinances imposing limits on the amount of rent landlords may charge for their properties, both residential and commercial.

Legislators in Springfield Want to Force Landlords Into Contracting with the Federal Government
This legislation would mandate that landlords participate in the Housing Choice Voucher Program, commonly referred to as the Section 8 program. Section 8 is a federal rental assistance program that is available for low income individuals. Participation is voluntary.
Functionally, the Section 8 program is a contract between a property owner and a Public Housing Authority (PHA). The Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) contract is provided by the PHA. The terms are non-negotiable. The contract applies without exception.
HB2775 will have the effect of mandating that a property owner enter into a non-negotiable contact with a unit of government, regardless if the property owner is willing to do so.
