    Cook county tenant protections on fast-track to approval after unanimous committee vote 

    Cook County commissioners on Tuesday unanimously endorsed a sweeping proposal to iron out legal protections for renters across the county’s suburbs, signaling its near-certain final approval this week after more than six months of grinding negotiations. 

    Commissioners voted 15-0 to advance the Cook County Residential Tenant and Landlord Ordinance (20-3562) out of the county board’s Zoning and Building Committee after incorporating the latest of a half-dozen revisions aimed at softening the blow on landlords. If approved again by the full Board of Commissioners on Thursday, the ordinance will go into full effect on June 1.
