Washington State Rent Control Public Hearing: Tues 1/30 @ 8 am - in Olympia

Notice from the Manufactured Housing Association of Washington:

SB 6400, concerning local authority to address affordable housing needs through regulation of rent and associated charges, is scheduled for a public hearing on Tuesday, January 30 at 8:00 a.m. in the Senate Financial Institutions & Insurance Committee in the JA Cherberg Building Room 3.  

You are invited to testify in Olympia regarding SB 6400.

The companion HB 2583 is scheduled for Executive Session (vote out of committee) in the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, February 1 at 1:30 p.m. in the John L. O’Brien Building Room A.  There is no need for anyone to attend this hearing, but you are encouraged to contact members of this committee asking them to “VOTE NO on HB 2583.”

These bills allow local cities and counties to allow rent control on rented/leased residential properties (single family homes, apartments and manufactured housing communities).  It repeals the 1981 state preemption against rent control and allows cities to regulate your rents.

You are also encouraged to contact your Senate Members and the members of the Senate Financial Institutions & Insurance Committee in OPPOSITION of SB 6400.

And contact your 2 House Members and the members of the House Judiciary Committee in OPPOSITION of HB 2583
