REALTORS urge legislature to fix “Hirst”, add housing inventory

This week, REALTORS® statewide will ask Olympia for immediate action on two vital pieces of legislation. The “call for action” will be sent to nearly 20,000 REALTORS® via email.

REALTORS® and their clients are seeking a fix to the “Hirst” decision, a state Supreme Court decision that jeopardizes the building of homes in areas reliant on wells. The decision affects hundreds of lots throughout the state. These efforts are contained in SB 5239.

REALTORS® are also asking for prompt action on efforts to create more housing inventory and assist affordable housing efforts. These efforts are contained in SB 5254.

When you receive the email, please take 30 seconds to click “yes,” which will send your legislators the message they need to hear. It’s fast, it’s easy, and will make a big difference!

Both of these measures will be considered as the legislature works on a budget to fully fund education.
