Will Oregon Continue to Manipulate the Housing Market?
Rent and mortage relief will be looked at it

With Governor Kate Brown's mandated shutdowns of businesses extended now til at least the end of the year 2020, many Oregonians are reportedly beginning to question whether the state will ever cede it's newfound powers that have materialized from the Coronavirus epidemic.

It seems that opportunists among those in power in Oregon are now wanting to see how much farther that power can be taken. Two legislative concepts have been introduced which will be considered in the third special session of 2020.

These concepts will become bills if passed by the Oregon legislature and will supposedly be passed in order to help stabilize the renting and housing market in Oregon which has been devastated by Kate Brown's moratorium on evictions and foreclosures.

Both of these bills, LC0017 and LC0018 will likely be passed by the legislature with the attachment of the Emergency Clause, making them go into effect immediately.
