Wanted to Use Local Taxpayer Money to Let Tenants Sue Landlords

HB 4771
"Relating to the creation of tenant legal services offices by local governments to assist low-income residential tenants in eviction cases and in cases involving discrimination based on the tenants' disabilities."

What taxpayer wants their local tax dollars to be used to pay for attorneys to sue landlords to avoid eviction because the tenant is poor, or indigent, or mentally ill?
