Source of income discrimination bill gets public hearing

While AWC has traditionally not engaged directly on tenant rights issues in recent years, we know that several cities are following the source of income discrimination issue closely. HB 1633 (Rep. Marcus Ricelli, D-Spokane) provides new restrictions in the residential landlord tenant act declaring that landlords may not refuse to rent to a tenant because they derive their income for rental payments from certain public or non-profit financial assistance like Section 8 or state funded rental vouchers.

The bill is currently scheduled for a public hearing in the House Judiciary Committee at 10 am on February 7.
