Governor Jay Inslee of Washington issued Proclamation 20. 19-3 on July 24th, which extends the state's eviction moratorium to October 15, 2020. This is the second time the governor has extended the moratorium. In his proclamation, Inslee encourages landlords and tenants to work together on payment plans, though he does not offer specific guidelines for how to do so. Read the full extension order here. According to the Washington Multi-Family Housing Association, the governor has indicated he will not be providing more specific guidance on reasonable payment/repayment plans and is leaving that up to the legislature for the next legislative session which begins in January 2021.
