EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Evansville City Councilman Alex Burton is taking a standing against Indiana House Bill 1541.
Burton released a testimony sent to the House Judiciary Committee expressing concerns about the bill. If passed, he says it would damage the rights of renters in the Hoosier State.
According to Burton, the bill wouldn’t require landlords to provide information to renters about their legal rights, preempts housing discrimination ordinances and favors the rights of landlords over tenants.
In his testimony, Burton says, “my fear is that this level of negligence will become the standard.”
