Homeowner's Bill of Rights Update: SB 6385 scheduled for hearing in House

Our Legislative Advocacy bill tracker reports that Senator Weinstein's bill to allow allows Washingtonians to recover repair costs in court if their homes are damaged by negligent construction has just been scheduled for a public hearing before the House Judiciary Committee.

SB 6385 is one of the Northwest Progressive Institute's top priorities this session. Our Outreach & Advocacy Director, Rick Hegdahl, testified in support last month before the Senate Judiciary Committee (the Senate has passed SB 6385).

The House is where the Homeowner's Bill of Rights died last year, so it is imperative that we present a strong case for the legislation before the committee.

The hearing details (which are subject to change) are as follows:

Public Hearing on SB 6385
House Judiciary Committee
John L O'Brien Building, House Hearing Room A
Tuesday, February 26th, 2008 at 6:00 PM

Members of the committee are as follows:
Patricia Lantz - Chair (D)
Roger Goodman - Vice Chair (D)
Jay Rodne - Ranking Minority Member (R)
Judy Warnick - Asst Ranking Minority Member (R)
John Ahern (R)
Dennis Flannigan (D)
Steve Kirby (D)
Jim Moeller (D)
Jamie Pedersen (D)
Charles Ross (R)
Brendan Williams (D)
If you can make the hearing, be there, even if you don't wish to testify. A packed room will show strong interest in the Homeowner's Bill of Rights.
