State Senate to hold hearing on Homeowner's Bill of Rights a week from today

Yesterday evening, the Labor, Commerce & Consumer Protection Committee released its agenda for next week's Thursday committee meeting.

Among the bills that have been scheduled for a hearing is SB 5895, prime sponsored by Senator Rodney Tom. SB 5895 is the 2009 Senate version of the Homeowner's Bill of Rights, one of our top legislative priorities.

Although much of the important work in Olympia gets done behind the scenes, having a strong showing at a hearing always helps. Here are the details:

Public Hearing on Senate Bill 5895
Labor, Commerce & Consumer Protection Committee
Thursday, February 19th, 2009 at 3:30 PM
Senate Hearing Room 4, J.A. Cherberg Building
Capitol Campus, Olympia, Washington

We urge you to make the trip to Olympia if you possibly can. This is important legislation. For those who can't, TVW will offer a webcast of the hearing. Comments may be submitted in writing, either in advance or at the time of the hearing.

We'll be at the hearing next week and also likely covering it live as well.
