PETITION TO REPEAL THE RENT CONTROL PREEMPTION ACT
In order to secure for the future, the prosperity of the Illinois economy and its Citizens, the Rent Control Preemption Act of 1997 must be repealed. The repeal of this Act will restore Home Rule, but in no way will hinder or prevent future Real Estate Development in Illinois. The burden of a successful private development should never have been placed upon the Citizens and Business Owners of Illinois in the first place. Unfettered rental rates have caused a raise in consumer goods and the People of Illinois to demand an increase in the minimum wage to $15.00 an hour. The burden of the People’s happiness however, is not solely the responsibility of Illinois’ Employers and Property Owners cannot be allowed to render this wage increase insufficient. Consequently, this petition is necessary to repeal the Rent Control Preemption Act so that we might examine what is causing the rise in rental rates statewide and determine reasonable solutions for our future well-being.
We, the undersigned, call upon the State of Illinois’ House of Representatives, Speaker, Michael J. Madigan to support, lobby and vote for Representative Will Guzzardi’s bill to repeal the Rent Control Preemption Act of 1997.
