• SB 608 Hearing

    Make sure your legislators hear from tenants at this critical hearing on SB 608, a bill which could limit annual rent increases and restrict no-cause evictions across Oregon - but, as written, would leave some of the most vulnerable tenants unprotected.  You can learn more about the good, the bad and the ugly of SB 608 here.

    The hearing is in Room HR 50 of the Oregon State Capitol in Salem.  Contact if you have or need a ride there.  You can also send written testimony by emailing
