We are moving quickly toward the end of this fast-paced state legislative session, and want to make sure you saw this opportunity to weigh in on a hearing for Rent Stabilization this Thursday:
Please sign in PRO here by Thursday 2/22 noon.

HB 2114 would improve housing stability for tenants by limiting rent and fee increases to 7% annually, requiring notice of increases, limiting fees and deposits, establishing a landlord resource center and associated services, is scheduled for the Senate Committee on Ways & Means on February 22 at 1:30 PM.

If you haven’t been receiving FAN weekly updates, you can find them archived on our website under News. And if you are looking for more ways to advocate this session, you can also find links on our Take Action page.

I look forward to seeing you in Yakima this Saturday!

In solidarity,
