HB 2578 (2018) is legislation proposed in Washington State's House of Representative that "would prohibit landlords from engaging in source of income (e.g., Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, and other rental housing assistance) discrimination against prospective or current tenants. It would also give legal recourse to sue in the event of such discrimination and provide a compensation measure by the state for private landlords if certain tenants cause significant damage to a unit. The bill is similar to last year’s HB 1633.
