Our just cause protections bill, HB 1236/Macri, is up for a vote in the House Housing, Human Services, and Veterans Committee this Friday! This is one of the most important times to contact your lawmakers, because they've heard the bill and some of the main arguments pro and con in testimony, but they REALLY need to hear from people in their district about why HB 1236 is so important.
Simultaneously, SB 5160 and SB 5139 also really need your help getting out of the Senate Housing and Local Government Committee. These bills provide important protections for renters as we begin the transition from the eviction moratorium to an economic recovery that centers housing stability.
We have already seen that powerful, well-resourced lobby groups are mobilizing to ensure evictions can start on April 1st, and we simply cannot let that happen. Please raise your voice this week to pass HB 1236, SB 5160 and SB 5139 out of committee!
Use the form on the right to ask your lawmakers to protect tenants from evictions and homelessness! THANK YOU!
