HB 168/SB 277 Human Relations – Housing discrimination – Source of Income. After many years of trying to pass legislation banning discrimination in housing based on source of income, we thought the combined efforts of an amazing and dedicated group of advocates and a large number of concerned and committed legislators would finely mean success.
We almost made it, with sufficient votes in the Environmental Matters Committee and the full House and Senate.
Unfortunately, we were short of the necessary votes to get the bill out of the Judicial Proceedings Committee in the Senate and so both bills were withdrawn.
