Discrimination in rental housing is banned under law. 

But landlords in Oregon could refuse to rent to people who got rental assistance through the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program. 

That ended effective July 1, when the Housing Choice Act went into effect under Oregon law. 

Now potential renters no longer have to ask "do you take Section 8?" 

We hear what prompted the law, and how it works.
