In light of the fact the federal government and state of Oregon have decided to extend the moratorium as to prevent tenants from being evicted for the non-payment of rent, it is only right that landlords should be forgiven for not paying property taxes — not to mention mortgage payments, insurance, repairs and water.

Since the state will not be taking in these funds, I feel that our legislators should take a significant pay cut to offset this loss. To date, no landlord has received any compensation from our state that was promised to them from the program set out by our Senate.

P.S. — Thank you President Biden for your decision to extend the border wall some 130 additional miles. I am sure that migrants will not travel to where there is another 1,000 miles of no wall. It is puzzling why there was no outcry by his party and the news media for this extension.
