A few things lived and a few things died. This week was the policy cut off for both the House and Senate. This means that if a bill did not receive a vote in its policy committee, it is considered dead for the session. All legislation that remains alive must be voted out of the Chamber of origin by February 14. Expect to see legislators working overtime to get through the mountain of proposals that are being considered this year in Olympia.
Before all this, WMFHA and other rental housing associations in Washington participated in the annual Day on the Hill where we met with both Senators and Representatives to discuss rent control, source of income and the notice of termination requirements.
