It’s hard to believe, but we’re already one month into the legislative session, which will end no later than May 21. This week is the first deadline for first committee hearings on bills, and legislators are preparing for spring recess the first week in April, which is a popular time to set in-district meetings or tours.
While we have a special update on MHP’s bill for a Tax Credit Contribution Fund, MHP is also working to support Homes for All Coalition priorities, including $140 million in bonds for housing: $110 million Housing Infrastructure Bonds (HIB) and $30 million General Obligation Bonds (GO), with senior and manufactured housing as new eligible uses.
