Proposed changes to Minneapolis ordinances get pushback   KSTP com

EXCERPT: “Representatives from the Minnesota Multi Housing Association on Friday announced a campaign to push back against proposed changes to city ordinances in Minneapolis which they said would negatively affect the majority of renters in the state’s largest city. ‘Regulations that hurt the vast majority of good renters are not the answer,’ said Mike Garvin, who is the association’s board chair. The proposed ordinance changes would limit how property owners can use criminal, credit and eviction histories to screen potential tenants. Landlords would no longer be able to reject tenants for felony convictions older than five years, misdemeanors older than two years, or for credit scores below 500.” FULLSTORY:
