GCAAR-Opposed 'Just Cause' Eviction Bill Defeated In Committee
A bill that would have placed more stringent requirements on Montgomery Cou

We are glad to see that GCAAR's concerns were heard loud and clear, and appreciate the committee's efforts to respect contract law and protect our County's housing landscape.
