Problematic surplus housing bill surfaces again

HB 1752 would require governments who dispose of surplus property at fair market value to transfer 20 percent of the proceeds to the state for deposit into the Housing Trust Fund. While cities are strong supporters of affordable housing, this proposal has met with significant concern and opposition from us over the years. It would be helpful for those of you with Representatives on the House Community Development and Housing committee to let them know of your concerns.
