A whole list of new laws: HB 2753, Creation of Workforce Housing

The Capital Record, from, posts the list of bills that the governor has signed into law on a given day.

Among today's bills was HB 2753.

Engrossed Substitute House Bill No. 2753, relating to the creation of a workforce housing program.

The bill that provides the funding source for HB 2753 is bill HB 2912.
Modifying local excise taxes in counties that have pledged lodging tax revenues for the payment of bonds prior to June 26, 1975.
It is unfortunate that Washington State Senator Rodney Tom chose this bill to mess with by piling on a dozen amendments.

The options here are limited:
try to pass HB 2912 on the floor with all those amendments (possible);
amend and pass SB 6051 that was regular session (possible);
or amend SB 6116 (yes, it still lives).
Have a great day,
Mike Baker
