Promoting Legislation To Make Housing More Affordable
The Capitol Dome is the focal point of the Legislative Building which houses the chambers of the Washington State Legislature.
The BIAW Legislative Program exists to defend affordable housing for the citizens
of Washington State.
BIAW's team of lobbyists work on members' behalf to pass pro-housing
legislation and defeat bills harmful to the housing industry. BIAW also relies on
an extensive grassroots system to educate elected officials on building industry-related
issues. During each Legislative Session, a weekly email report - Lawmaker Review - is sent
to members to update them on legislation and advises them when to contact their legislators.
BIAW's lobbying and grassroots efforts have been responsible for sponsoring, amending and defeating legislation
that affects builders, their businesses and their employees.
BIAW’s experienced legislative team works for you to protect your livelihood and
the dream of homeownership for Washington State families.
If you have any questions regarding the BIAW Legislative Program, please call BIAW Goverment
Affairs Director Jan Himebaugh at 800-228-4229, ext. 135.
