Rent Control Legislation HB 2583

Rereferred to House Judiciary Committee


Contact Members of the

Judiciary Committee


HB 2583




Dear WLA Members:


HB 2583, concerning local authority to address affordable housing needs through regulation of rent and associated charges, was originally introduced in the Community Development, Housing & Tribal Affairs Committee, and was just referred today to the House Judiciary Committee.


This bill allows local cities and counties to allow rent control on rented/leased residential properties, which includes manufactured housing communities.  This bill repeals 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


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.
