The proposed substitute amendment addresses most of the concerns we had about the original bill. Hence, we have changed our position on the bill to neutral.

Comments
We oppose language in the bill that would allow landlords to issue a 5-day notice to vacate without due process for the renter. We believe this could be used to discriminate against people with mental illnesses.
