Tell Your Senator to OPPOSE HB 1115 and Save Affordable Housing

HB23-1115 has been amended to exempt buildings 15 years or newer, exempt nonprofit housing regulated by federal or state programs, allows local governments to apply rent control ordinances to mobile home parks, and creates a formula that limits the amount a housing provider can increase the rent. This bill, as amended, will make it harder for housing providers to rent out their properties in a time of housing supply need. Please send a pre-written message to your State Senator, urging them to OPPOSE HB 1115. Take Action
