Saying the state is the midst of an affordable housing crisis, one lawmaker has introduced legislation that aims to boost low-cost rental units by offering a tax credit.
State Rep. Sara Feigenholtz, a Chicago Democrat, is chief sponsor of the measure. “This a bill that essentially attempts to address an issue that's happening not only in the city, but statewide, which is affordable housing. There's a crisis in the state,” she said.
