Three Percent for Housing.
- Issue: House Bill 2418, the Home Security Fund, just cleared a major legislative hurdle last week by passing the Washington State House of Representatives with a 72-24 vote. Now it begins its process in the Senate before it can go to the Governor for her signature. Clearing a long backlog of affordable housing projects waiting to be built, the bill provides $25 million a year for low-income housing across the state and could provide 2,300 units of affordable housing.
