Political Action Committee (PAC)

The most important protection for our industry involves electing and building relationships with politicians who understand the importance and value of the rental housing industry.

Committee

Landlords have been targeted for blame as politicians fail to address our region’s affordable housing needs. From efforts to restrict your rights and access to information when screening tenants, to mandatory rental housing inspections, and attempts to implement rent control, your rights as a landlord in Washington State are under attack.

Our Political Action Committee exists to elect responsible candidates who will work collaboratively with RHAWA and the rental industry when issues arise. Without pro-rental housing candidates in office, your rights as a landlord will be threatened with endless regulation.
