An Illinois law set to go into effect at the beginning of 2024 will ban landlords from discriminating against potential tenants on the basis of their immigration status.

Illinois Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed SB 1817 into law late last month, which will add “protections in the Illinois Human Rights Act for housing regarding immigration status protection and discriminatory advertising.”

The law was part of several pieces of legislation Pritzker signed last month, including another law aimed at giving undocumented immigrants access to state drivers licenses. The bill replaces the current Temporary Visitor Driver’s License with a standard license that will last four years, a move that will impact over 300,000 people who currently hold the temporary licenses.
