CALL TO ACTION! Rent Control Legislation – OPPOSE HB 2583 & SB 6400

Contact Members of the
House Judiciary Committee TO OPPOSE HB 2583
& Senate Financial Institutions & Insurance Committee TO OPPOSE SB 6400

Dear MHCW Members:

HB 2583, concerning local authority to address affordable housing needs through regulation of rent and associated charges, was introduced in the House Judiciary Committee.

The identical bill, SB 6400, concerning local authority to address affordable housing needs through regulation of rent and associated charges, was introduced in the Senate Financial Institutions & Insurance Committee.

These bills allow local cities and counties to allow rent control on rented/leased residential properties, which includes manufactured housing communities.  They repeal the 1981 state preemption against rent control and allows cities to regulate your rent in any way that they would like.

We need you to do some grassroots and contact the members of the House Judiciary Committee in OPPOSITION of HB 2583 and contact the members of the Senate Financial Institutions & Insurance Committee in OPPOSITION of SB 6400.

Attached is a factsheet on why rent control is not beneficial to tenants, community and landlords as well as the list of committee members.

Please ACT right away!

Thank you in advance.

Many thanks.
