Fair Housing Bill Dies in Conference
As reported in our May News & Legislative Update, House Bill 1409 to end discriminatory rental practices against voucher holders and victims of domestic violence was amended in the Senate to instead create a Study Commission. The House did not concur with the Senate’s amended version of the bill, and requested a Committee of Conference to try finding common ground between the House and Senate versions.
The House and Senate appointed conferees, who met May 28 . Unfortunately, they were unable to reach agreement on the final bill language. As a result, HB1409 died in conference.
