Sources: House Speaker Kotek favors statewide rent control

Oregon House Speaker Tina Kotek says the 2019 Legislature will consider a statewide rent control and tenant protection program.

Speaking before the Columbia Corridor Association on Dec. 7, Kotek, the Democrat who represents District 44, said the state cannot guarantee enough additional homes will be built in coming years to overcome the current affordable housing crisis.

But Kotek also said the Legislature should not simply repeal the existing state prohibition on local rent control programs.

Instead, Kotek said the upcoming legislative session would consider imposing restrictions on rent increases and no-cause evictions across the state, even though she admitted developers have said that could reduce future new home construction.
