The 2019 Washington state legislative session is expected to be a hyperactive and hyper-polarized environment. It is more important than ever for you to communicate the rental housing industry's priorities and policy stances with policymakers. Hearing directly from the people that are most affected by their decisions has a real impact on the way many of these officials vote. The time you spend with them can pay enormous dividends down the line. The lawmakers that make policy decisions on your behalf want to meet directly with you, their constituents, and there is no better opportunity than in Olympia where decisions are made.
WMFHA's Day on the Hill is your chance to speak directly with your elected officials to make your voice heard. Coming to Olympia is your chance to gain an advantage and take action with the collective goal of improving the quality and quantity of rental housing in Washington state.
This year's Day on the Hill is expected to be the best ever with a 100 percent on-campus experience for you to meet, interact with and lobby members of the legislature, without having to leave the Capitol campus.
