Close the blinds, multiple days of 95+ degree temperatures are coming to much of Oregon and Washington this week.

Keep in mind earlier this year SB 1536 amended the Oregon Residential Landlord Tenant Act to limit restrictions on renter use of portable cooling devices from May to September. Read full description and overview here.

Local governments have updated websites with resources for cooling centers and strategies to beat the heat. Make sure to share this information with your communities.
