New ordinance in court today
Tuesday, January 6, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano
This morning, a federal court will consider a temporary restraining order that could block implementation of the city’s recently passed Source of Income ordinance. The Austin Apartment Association filed suit to overturn the ordinance almost immediately after it passed last month. If implemented, the new ordinance would prevent property owners from discriminating against potential renters based on their source of income. The ordinance is scheduled to take effect on Jan. 12. The court hearing has been scheduled for 10 a.m. today.
