Landlords jacking up your rent? This bill would make them pay you

The proposed bill would apply to renters making less than eighty percent of area median income.

“New protections may be on the way for Seattleites who can no longer afford rent.Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant says she’ll introduce a bill in the next few months that would require landlords to pay for relocation expenses if rent goes up by more than 10 percent.”
