  • Advocacy

On Thursday, October 17, MBAKS unveiled its 2020 Legislative Priorities at our Housing Solutions Breakfast before a full house at Bellevue’s Meydenbauer Center. Our guest speakers at the breakfast included former Washington State Governor Christine Gregoire, state Senators Marko Liias and Patty Kuderer, and Representatives Mia Gregerson and Nicole Macri.

This year is a short, 60-day session, but our agenda remains vigorous. Included initiatives are: Accessory Dwelling Unit legislation; missing middle housing; expansion of last year’s HB 1923; and WUCIOA (or Common Interest Community) changes and exemptions.


Help us build a sound future.
